I was sure this must be in one of the FAQs but I couldn't see it there. I would like to be able to wait for either a normal XEvent or some other action like data ready on a message queue. Normally I would just use the select() call with the appropriate file descriptors and everything would be fine.
I can't see any way of doing this under X11. If I use XNextEvent() then that blocks and I can't handle the other source of input. If I use one of the non-blocking versions of XNextEvent() then I have to busy poll alternately checking the 2 sources of input.
There must be a way around this ?
