Can you be more specific? Are you referring to Windows? I'm not suggesting
you'd be able to use the same exact implementation on Unix and non-Unix
platforms. You might well have to do different things across different
platforms. Hopefully it would look the same to the programmer though, both
across platforms and across toolkits. I can't imagine any of the X-based
widget toolkits on Unix systems would use anything other than select() on a
socket at the bottom.
