From: Charles Martin <joelisp@y...>
Subject: [Caml-list] Unix module: wish list
Two items on my wish list for the Unix module:

(1) Adding socket options at the IPPROTO_IP level.  I'm only interested in one:
IP_TTL (time-to-live).  This is supported under BSD sockets and Winsock2. 
Here's the Winsock2 reference:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/winsock/wsanxref_58fm.asp

(2) Adding set_nonblock() and clear_nonblock() options for sockets under
Windows.  These are no-ops in the current win32unix library, but nonblocking
mode is supported under Winsock2:

    ioctlsocket( sock, FIONBIO, temp );

Thanks for listening,

Charles
