poexs (pronounced 'pokes') is the drive to implement a C based event subsystem that is 100% compatible with POE itself. Users should be able to switch between poe-perl and poe-xs without any code change.

Currently we are in the idea/experimentation stage. We will be starting small with structures and interfaces for the kernel and session frameworks and building from there.

Unlike POE, which is licensed under the same terms as Perl, this distribution is licensed under the MIT license.
