Projects / liboop


Liboop provides a generic, callback-based event dispatch interface, and aims to ease the development of multiplexed, non-blocking, event-driven modular applications, components, and libraries under POSIX-based operating systems. It includes adapters for select(), poll(), the glib event loop, the TCL event loop, the W3C libwww, asynchronous DNS, and GNU readline.

    Release Notes: The build is little more robust now, and you can enable and disable specific adapters in the configure script. The ADNS adapter returns error messages. The GLib adapter works with GLib 2. There's a new oop_sys_run_once() function, so you can poll an event source.
