Well, I'm not really in to all this fork/deamon/nonblocking connections and whatever other fancy words i can come up with.. BUT, I noticed that the doc-file (the ident.h file :) has some different functions, and some of them should be able to do the same as the ident_id() call the library provides - BUT NONBLOCKING ... Now to me it seams that teh idea of forking a process off the main mud routine, or making a seperate deamon (wich I have no idea how do make :), is all for teh purpose of getting a nonblocking socket I/O. Isn't that rigt ? Anyways, I wondered if anyone with a little more knowledge about socket handling in Circle, could possibly take a look at the ident-library calls? I'm quite sure it's possible to make such a nonblocking version with a little knowledge about how nonblocking I/O is set up, and checked for in circle... And frankly would remove some workload off my shoudlers :) Well, thats all... just a little begging for someone with a better knowledge of socket handling to look at the problem this way, and maybe be nice enuff to give me/us the solution. Regards, Con.
