[Haskell-cafe] Blocking problem reading a handle

 Hi, cafe,

 all I want is to read the unread portion of a handle, without blocking 
 waiting for an EOF or a newline. My first attempt was to try with 
 hGetBufNonBlocking from System.IO, and other functions that use it in 
 its definition (directly or indirectly). But, unfortunately:

 hGetBufNonBlocking doesn't work on Windows: 

 This was a bad surprise.

 How can achieve my purpose without hGetBufNonBlocking?

 Thanks in advance,
 Daniel Díaz
