NAME¶io_wantwrite - signal that you want to write to a descriptor
void io_wantwrite(int64 fd);
DESCRIPTION¶io_wantwrite tells the next io_wait() that you want to write to this descriptor. Call io_dontwantwrite() again if you change your mind.
The next time you call io_wait(), it will look whether this descriptor becomes writeable, too. You can then use io_canwrite() to check whether the descriptor has become writable.
You have to have called io_fd on the descriptor first (io_pipe and io_socketpair do this for you). Waiting on descriptors only works for sockets, fifos and pipes. It may also work on devices and TTYs, but that is platform dependent -- you should not rely on that.
