epoll kqueue iocp
This book aims to explain how Epoll, Kqueue and IOCP works, and how we can use this for efficient, high performance I/O. The book is divided into three parts:
Part 1 - An express explanation: is probably what you want to read if you're interested in a short introduction.
The Appendix contains some additional references and small articles explaining some concepts that I found interesting and which is related to the kind of code we write here.
Part 2 is special. 99% of readers should not even go there. You'll find page up and down with code and explanations just to implement the simplest example of a cross-platform-eventloop that actually works. Turns out that there is no "express" way of doing this.
