In Linux, if I call accept(socket_fd, ....); it will block until
there is a connection attempt to that socket.
In Cygwin, even after writing code to ensure it is blocking*, it acts
in a non-blocking manner. I've looked around and can find no
explaination for this, so I'm just wondering if anyone has any
* The code I used to force blocking was:
/* Set our listen socket blocking */
flags = fcntl(listenfd, F_GETFL, 0);
flags = flags & ~FNDELAY; /* Turn blocking on */
fcntl(listenfd, F_SETFL, flags);
