Binding for uv_poll and replacement for IOWatcher


SocketWatcher is a JavaScript binding for uv_poll based on code by TobyEalden (with permission) for node_mdns. It's useful as a drop-in replacement for Node's old, private module IOWatcher.

More information on uv_poll:

##Installation and use

$ npm install socketwatcher

var SocketWatcher = require("socketwatcher").SocketWatcher;
var watcher = new SocketWatcher();
watcher.callback = function() { [...] };
watcher.set(fd, read_flag, write_flag);
// watcher.stop(); 

Note: since version 0.2.0, you must use require("socketwatcher").SocketWatcher, instead of using the module object directly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
