Re: cygwin 1.5.23-2 : I can't use select() with serial device and socket

I use unix names. I will post an example code tomorrow.

There's probably not enough information here to help.  It would be
easier if you provided a simplified standalone testcase that we can
compile and run.  Are you opening the serial device using the standard
unix name (/dev/ttyS0) and not the DOS name ("COM1")?  The latter will
succeed but probably not work with things like ioctl or select, because
in order to emulate those APIs Cygwin has to know to treat the handle
specifically as a serial device, which it only does if you open it using
the unix form.
