I'm trying to listen to a bunch of sockets using epoll under Linux, e.g.
import select, socket
socket1 = socket.socket() ...
p = select.epoll()
p.register(socket1); p.register(socket2); ...
result = p.poll()
This returns `result' as a list of 2-tuples (fd, status) where fd
is a Linux file descriptor, i.e. a small integer like comes back
from socket.fileno(). That's different from select.select, which
returns a list of actual socket objects that I can read from with
Any idea of a good way to map the file descriptors back to socket
objects? Is there some kind of hidden interface that I don't know
about, that gives back sockets directly?
The docs for epoll in select.html don't seem very good. I haven't
yet examined the source code.
Thanks for any advice.
