[zeromq-dev] Pattern for clean shutdown of a proxy loop

Hi,

What is the best practice when you are creating a loop that functions like
the zmq_proxy device, to bind a PULL socket that is fed by a backend
ventilator with a frontend PUB socket, in order to properly handle a clean
shutdown?

Most of the examples on the zguide just show "while (1)" with a loop that
never terminates. What's the suggested way of signaling to the loop which
is running in its own thread that it is time to shut down?

Thanks,
Cosmo
