The standard library io_wait_hostthread package implements a server hostthread which essentially sits in a loop doing C select() on the currently interesting set of file descriptors, pipe descriptors and socket descriptors. The primary purpose is to offload blocking I/O from the main threadkit hostthread, allowing it to run full speed. (A secondary purpose is to generate a timeslicing clock for threadkit via the select() timeout.)
The io_wait_hostthread package implements the Io_Wait_Hostthread api.
The io_wait_hostthread package source code is in src/lib/std/src/hostthread/io-wait-hostthread.pkg.
