"WSAAsynSelect" offered by winsock in Win32 SDK for which offers you to register your socket events to OS so that whenever that event occurs OS (Windows) will redirect it to your application. This helps as your application no need to wait ifinitely or in a blocking mode for resceiving the packect from the peer process. Whenever that network event occurs Windows will redirect it to you. Is there any similar call like WSAAsyncSelect for Linux/Unix? :)
