Can we use Posix.1-2001 poll() in Metro App

    Question

  • Can we use Posix.1-2001 poll() in Metro app?  I have to port a library which used poll() into Metro app,  My question is that is poll() a blacklist API in Metro style App?  If I just port this module into the app, could the app pass cert kit checking?

    Thanks.

  • You can write a small test app and run it through the Windows App Cert Kit to see if it passes.

    Poll is not a Win32 API and so whether it is allowed or not will depend on the implementation of the library which provides it.
