Dear all,
I am a libwww beginner. I would to modify mget such that it can respond
simultaneously on more sockets. Nowadays, if dump-cgi is a simple cgi
sleeping 2 seconds, "mget http://localhost/cgi-bin/dump-cgi 5" requires
about 10 seconds. Moreover, by means of tcpdump, a fixed limited number
of socket seems to be interested, also varying the HTNet_setMaxSocket
parameter. 
I hope non-blocking sockets allows to get responses in about 2 seconds.
Is it realistic?
Giovanni Mondo
