When is the file descriptors in Select() 'ready'?

Summary: hot



I'm having an issue with the select() function since it doesn't block when called. 
The way I understand select() is when called and one of the file descriptors is 
'ready' like an incoming tcp request, then it should unblock. When I call select(), 
my file descriptors seem to be always ready. I'm not sure how to resolve this since I 
don't know what the function is doing to determine a file descriptor is ready or not. 

Another question is with the assignment, if you got the extension to the 2nd of June, 
does the 5% each day reduction in mark start from that day?
