Hmm ... wait, I take that back. poll() is required by SUS v2, which has been our minimum baseline spec for a long time (even my pet dinosaur HPUX has it). As long as we have an answer for Windows, it's hard to argue we can't require poll() elsewhere. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
