Subject:   non-blocking and select

Thanks for an excellant article. You accurately seperate non-blocking from multiplexing, which previous articles on NIO have not done.


Question: Why does select require the sockets to be non-blocking? This is different from the standard BSD Sockets API and likely to cause confusion with those (and there are many) of us who are familiar with the BSD Sockets API.
