RE: CURL loops infinitely when cable is pulled out.

Thanks- the port was done in July '06. It has worked fine except for
select returning 0 requiring timeout options set. After I set that it
does time out too. We definitely appreciate Daniel's posts. I am sure a
lot of Curl users agree.

I just wish I could have submitted the patches that he requested I do.

Honestly, you should think about asking your company to pay Daniel to
port it to your WinCE plattform.
He knows the curl code,
He knows about sockets,
He will be able to do it in less time,
He can patch it into mainline and support upcoming versions too.

Of course, curl has a neat license to rip the code, but maybe you might
save some time/money if you pay for support using the curl commercial
support program.
