NAME ^

IOMux::Poll - simplify use of poll()

INHERITANCE ^

 IOMux::Poll
   is a IOMux

SYNOPSIS ^

  use IOMux::Poll;

  my $mux    = IOMux::Poll->new;
  my $server = IOMux::Service::TCP->new(...);
  $mux->add($server);
  $mux->loop;

DESCRIPTION ^

Multiplexer based on the poll() system call, defined by POSIX.

The poll has less administration overhead than the select call (implemented via IOMux::Select) because it avoids the need to play with bit-vectors to see which file handles got activated. However, poll is not supported on all platforms.
