[Xorp-hackers] Migrating Routing Process to XORP

I am trying to migrate a routing process to XORP but I am having some
problems on understanding somethings. I have already mapped in the
routing process code everywhere it uses sockets to send/receive control
packets and the first thing I want to do is to migrate this
functionality to XORP. But I confess that I am a bit lost. At first I
though that I should use the XrlSocketServer class for this, but looking
at the RIP example code I found no reference to this class. So, what how
should I do it?
Maybe it could be easier to understand from an example. The original
code is based on a "select", i.e., it creates a socket server for
listening the interface and an infinite loop keeps monitoring the
arrival of packets (through a select) so that they can be processed. How
can I convert this kind of construction to go through XORP?
