accepted If we only know that a video is 720P, 480P or 240P can that unambiguously tell us of the resolution?

comment Is an event loop just a for/while loop with optimized polling?
If you can extend your answer based on the last comment (with the conclusion that it's not polling but multi threading with interrupts at the bare level) i will the answer.

So to avoid the busy waiting blocking must occur? In the end the whole idea of the event loop approach (as opposite to multi threading), boils down to multi threading?

This makes sense, however what is the event loop doing while it's waiting for the interrupt? If it's blocking, isn't that the 'multi threaded' approach which is the paradigm opposite to the event loop?

I am confused with the statement Most event loops will block. How does this fit into the "the event loop paradigm, opposed to using threads, uses nonblocking asynchronous calls"?

Isn't an interrupt a change of voltage on a wire? Can that trigger an event by itself or must we poll the pin for the voltage value?
