Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] event library
From: Timothy Hayes (hayesti_at_[hidden])

Do you mean the code in OPAL/event? If so, it's a customised libevent. I've
seen it used in OpenMPI to poll/select open sockets, it allows the
programmer register their own callback functions for when this happens. Just
ignore me if this wasn't what you were asking about though :-)
