An asynchronous event notification library
The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout has been reached.
libevent is meant to replace the asynchronous event loop found in event driven network servers. Currently, libevent supports /dev/poll, kqueue(2), event ports, select(2), poll(2) and epoll(4).
For backward compatibility and to transition to libevent_core only or libevent_core and libevent_extra, the libevent source package builds the libevent library that includes everything in libevent_core and libevent_extra.
