Re: Need help with UNIX tcp

On our emulation of Berkeley sockets (on a DOS PC), select() will indicate
that a connection is readable, writeable, and/or has an exception, depending
on which conditions were select'ed, if the connection has died. The theory
is to cause the caller to do an I/O specific to that connection, whereupon
he will get an error.

In the process of determining what to do, it was discovered that this behaviour
is not consistent across real Unix implementations. What does POSIX say?
