Subjectselect() on /dev/input/eventX not level-triggered?
Hi!

I'm debugging strange behaviour on /dev/input/eventX ... it seems that
select is not behaving level-triggered as it apparently should. I can
reproduce it when hitting windows & alt keys.

Now, I really should rewrite it into C, first, but perhaps someone has
an idea?

import struct

#
# format of the event structure (int, int, short, short, int)
inputEventFormat = 'iihhi'
inputEventSize = 16
file = open("/dev/input/event5", "rb") # standard binary file input
while 1:
( i, o, e ) = select.select( [file], [], [], 0.5 )
if i == []:
print "timeout event"
continue
event = file.read(inputEventSize)
time.sleep(1)
(time1, time2, type, code, value) = struct.unpack(inputEventFormat, event)
print "type ", type, " code ", code, " value ", value

file.close()
