zpoller - Class for trivial socket poller class

//  This is a stable class, and may not change except for emergencies. It
//  is provided in stable builds.
//  Create new poller, specifying zero or more readers. The list of
//  readers ends in a NULL. Each reader can be a zsock_t instance, a
//  zactor_t instance, a libzmq socket (void *), or a file handle.
CZMQ_EXPORT zpoller_t *
    zpoller_new (void *reader, ...);
// Destroy a poller CZMQ_EXPORT void zpoller_destroy (zpoller_t **self_p);
// Add a reader to be polled. Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure. The reader may // be a libzmq void * socket, a zsock_t instance, or a zactor_t instance. CZMQ_EXPORT int zpoller_add (zpoller_t *self, void *reader);
// Remove a reader from the poller; returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure. The reader // must have been passed during construction, or in an zpoller_add () call. CZMQ_EXPORT int zpoller_remove (zpoller_t *self, void *reader);
// By default the poller stops if the process receives a SIGINT or SIGTERM // signal. This makes it impossible to shut-down message based architectures // like zactors. This method lets you switch off break handling. The default // nonstop setting is off (false). CZMQ_EXPORT void zpoller_set_nonstop (zpoller_t *self, bool nonstop);
// Poll the registered readers for I/O, return first reader that has input. // The reader will be a libzmq void * socket, or a zsock_t or zactor_t // instance as specified in zpoller_new/zpoller_add. The timeout should be // zero or greater, or -1 to wait indefinitely. Socket priority is defined // by their order in the poll list. If you need a balanced poll, use the low // level zmq_poll method directly. If the poll call was interrupted (SIGINT), // or the ZMQ context was destroyed, or the timeout expired, returns NULL. // You can test the actual exit condition by calling zpoller_expired () and // zpoller_terminated (). The timeout is in msec. CZMQ_EXPORT void * zpoller_wait (zpoller_t *self, int timeout);
// Return true if the last zpoller_wait () call ended because the timeout // expired, without any error. CZMQ_EXPORT bool zpoller_expired (zpoller_t *self);
// Return true if the last zpoller_wait () call ended because the process // was interrupted, or the parent context was destroyed. CZMQ_EXPORT bool zpoller_terminated (zpoller_t *self);
// Self test of this class. CZMQ_EXPORT void zpoller_test (bool verbose);
Please add '@interface' section in './../src/zpoller.c'.

The zpoller class provides a minimalist interface to ZeroMQ’s zmq_poll API, for the very common case of reading from a number of sockets. It does not provide polling for output, nor polling on file handles. If you need either of these, use the zmq_poll API directly.
The class implements the poller using the zmq_poller API if that exists, else does the work itself.
