You might want to look at asio <>, which

Thanks for the pointer, but as I said in my original post:-

I have had a brief look at the async IO in boost but it seems a bit
immature to me. I don't wish to slag boost off because in general it
just fine, and there are parts of it that are great (e.g. smart
but in this particular area I think it has not rcvd very much
This is in spite of the async IO being considered for inclusion into
next std. I think there is room for quite a bit more consideration
