To: "Libwww" <www-lib@w3.org>

In tiny.c (one of the example programs that comes with libwww), the
console_parser function is registered as callback of a event:
    HTEvent_new(console_parser, me, HT_PROIORITY_MAX, -1);

The last parameter indicates the timeout in milliseconds. What does that
mean when -1 is passed? Why it has been done in this way?

I can't find any good explanation in w3's documents. Could you please help
me out?
