Thank you. This leads me to the next question :)

I have read a lot of docs and sources.
and the only thing I found is a linux man page "$ man select".
But this is for C programmers :-(
This was before a couple of hours before I see your mail...

And I want to ask where exactly is this implemented in free pascal ?
I use version 1.0.6.
