[21:19:04] <wjp> oh, hi
[21:19:09] <wjp> just sent you an email 2 seconds ago :-)
[21:19:16] <Yuv422> hehe
[21:19:20] <Yuv422> hi
[21:20:09] <Yuv422> cool
[21:20:26] <Yuv422> so they have changed the comms protocol a bit then?
[21:22:14] <wjp> I don't think so
[21:23:59] <wjp> but rpc_engine_t::process_request was effectively behaving like an infinite wait-for-event-and-execute loop now
[21:24:15] <Yuv422> I do remember wrestling with the comms handling and when to poll for debug events from IDA when we were first integrating it into dosbox
[21:25:27] <wjp> many things related to polling have changed
[21:25:48] <wjp> one function that you used to pass a POLL flag to lost its flag field entirely
[21:26:11] <wjp> and another one went from conditional polling to something conditional on the is_server bool
[21:26:28] <wjp> but I can't say I entirely understand this
[21:46:04] --> Kirben has joined #nuvie
[21:46:09] <wjp> but poll_events returning non-zero is the only way to get out of recv_all cleanly, and poll_events is virtual, so this might actually not be so bad
[21:46:34] <wjp> anyway, time to go; see you later
[22:07:02] <Yuv422> cya
