Fam has one other example of the use of extern "C", but it
encloses the declaration (or is it definition?) of a prototype.
In the example above there is no prototype for 'select', so I'm
not sure where the 'extern' should go.
Just for fun I added this prototype to the code:
extern "C" int select(int, fd_set*, fd_set*, fd_set*, struct timeval*);
Now I get complaints from <sys/select.h> about duplicate definitions
of select() :o(
I've tried surrounding my new prototype with various #ifndefs, but
no joy so far.
I'm wondering if the recent changes to select.h have resulted in
a circular dependency somewhere. Dunno.
