[Mono-devel-list] Regarding blocking Read operation

Hi All,

I am facing some problem with the read operations being blocking. 

I am launching a process and and have redirected the output/error
streams. Then using the Read method of the StreamReader class, I read
from the redirected output/error streams of the process. If there is no
data coming in either of these streams, then the Read method blocks and
does not return. 

As I understand from the documentation, ReadBlock is the blocking
version of Read method. However, when there is no data in a stream then
the Read operation is also blocking.

Is there any other way to do a non blocking read opeartion?

Thanks in Advance,
