It wasn't. The odd design is a result of APR just flat out not giving
me anyway of doing non-blocking IO on stdin without doing this. APR
actually includes code for non-blocking IO. But it will only use it on
a pipe. *sigh*

You'll note there's a comment in there saying that if and when APR gives
us better way to do this use it. Unfortunately, I don't think that'll
happen for a long time because as far as I can tell even APR 1.0 is
missing support for turning on non-blocking IO for stdin.

Incidentally this is pretty much identical to how APR does non-blocking
IO on pipes.

Yup forgot to change that.

Yup you're right. The above will just loop forever on APR_ENOTIMPL or
an error.

Umm the timeout is the whole point. I'm trying to get an opportunity to
call the cancel function. I think you missed the entire point of this
exercise. If all I wanted to do was wait until someone typed something
I wouldn't need any of this at all. But I want to wait for people to
type something *AND* periodically poll for a cancel.

If someone can see a better way of achieving this then by all means
please commit it.

The fixes to your comments are committed in r10136. Thanks for catching
