The socket of Delphi and Synapse implements WaitForData:

function TWinSocketStream.WaitForData(Timeout: Longint): Boolean;
  FDSet: TFDSet;
  TimeVal: TTimeVal;
  TimeVal.tv_sec := Timeout div 1000;
  TimeVal.tv_usec := (Timeout mod 1000) * 1000;
  FD_SET(FSocket.SocketHandle, FDSet);
  Result := select(0, @FDSet, nil, nil, @TimeVal) > 0;

I do not know where it would be used, it's just an observation hehe...
