63. Alternative I/O Models

Chapter 63. Alternative I/O Models

This chapter discusses three alternatives to the conventional file I/O model that we have employed in most programs shown in this book:

  • I/O multiplexing (the select() and poll() system calls);

  • signal-driven I/O; and

  • the Linux-specific epoll API.
