    sockets: trouble with getting client input

    I'm writing a toy MUD/chat server to learn more about socket programming and C++, but I'm having trouble with getting client input.

    I can start the server and then connect to it with telnet, but only the first message I send to the server is ever read and output; I don't know why.

    This function loops in a while(1) after all the initialization is done, and is supposed to handle new clients connecting as well as client input.

    http://pastebin.com/XmYLAKRy

    Client:
    telnet localhost 6000
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    stuff
    and more stuff
    some more stuff
    Server output:
    Player connecting.
    Adding player on fd 4.
    Player input: stuff

    I sort of figured out what's going on. Blocking for the player write and player exception fd_sets was stopping the program at select().
