Hello, I've got a small question. In Linux(and possibly other unix like operating systems), you can make a file descriptor non blocking using the function from the header fcntl.h with this call:
fcntl(FileDescriptor, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);
My question is, does the function fcntl also exist in Windows? Thanx Hylke

And No. fcntl does not exist in windows

Could you give a small example?
Because I've searched the net and I could only find some strange things like:
WSAOVERLAPPED structure and WSAIoctl([..]) which needs lot's of parameters which I don't know where they're used for.
Thanx in advance,
Hylke
