You can poll events in SDL: SDL_PollEvent()

We'll if you can also use the event loop for your self that would be
nice.  But yes using something like event machine and sdl which both
block doesn't work out.

        For both luvit and nodejs, the main loop is libuv.  I'm not sure if
        it's possible to share a loop, but it would be a neat experiment for
        someone (not me) to try.

        The only way I can imagine node and luvit working together is with
        multiple processes and message passing through some common IPC.

    I thought Daniel's point was not to interleave nodejs and luvit
    event loops, but to be able to interleave the luvit event loop with
    other event loops (eg a Qt GUI event loop, just to give an example
    I'd be interested in). In such a case luvit would have a pump()
    method that polls the event i/o queues and then returns rather than
    an event loop that blocks for ever. I realise this isn't how to
    program a high performance web server but it would be very useful in
    event driven applications.

    Also, what's the scope for using other proptocol parsers in this
    framework? Would it be easy to integrate an RTSP or OSC parser?
