    asynchronized I/O == multiplexing I/O?

    Hello everyone,


    I always see the two words -- asynchronized I/O and I/O multiplexing. Are they the same thing -- like select/poll?

    I noticed that in some situations, people say they are different and asynchronized I/O is better than I/O multiplexing.

    Could anyone help to clarify the differences between the two words?


    thanks in advance,
    George

    A simple glance at your dictionary clears things right up, but here, I'll help:
    asynchronous
    multiplex
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
