Hello @ all,

I'm trying so understand the hostapd code for a while now.
Step by step it's getting more clear to me how everything is working.

The Problem I'm facing right now is that I don't understand the function 
of eloop completely.

I figured out that in eloop.c the overall eventloop is implemented. But 
I don't understand the behavior of eloop_run(). Everything starts here 
an every function goes bak to this point. What I don't see is how 
functions are called again after they are exited, I don't understand how 
functions are called from here either.

Is this a socket thing?

I hope some of you can get me on the right track.
