Speaking of PeekNamedPipe...
A few months ago I contributed a fully working win32 poll()
implementation to PulseAudio (based on gnulib). Because pacat could not
read from a process that outputs an audio data stream to stdout, and
this case did not work with their poll() function (it really only
handled sockets properly). Anyway, the poll() I provided handles pipes
and console stdin/stdout as well. You can find it here:
I remember I looked how glib implements poll() on Windows (because
pulseaudio still failed when it used its glib-mainloop plugin) and it
also didn't have a proper implementation. I think glib uses poll() for
GIO stuff and based on my findings I would expect that glib does poorly
with GIO on win32 pipes.
Perhaps it would be worthwhile to get that poll() implementation into glib?
