Documented in curl_fds poll

#' Poll for process I/O or termination
#'
#' Wait until one of the specified connections or processes produce
#' standard output or error, terminates, or a timeout occurs.
#'
#' @section Explanation of the return values:
#' * `nopipe` means that the stdout or stderr from this process was not
#'   captured.
#' * `ready` means that the connection or the stdout or stderr from this
#'   process are ready to read from. Note that end-of-file on these
#'   outputs also triggers `ready`.
#' * timeout`: the connections or processes are not ready to read from
#'   and a timeout happened.
#' * `closed`: the connection was already closed, before the polling
#'   started.
#' * `silent`: the connection is not ready to read from, but another
#'   connection was.
#'
#' @param processes A list of connection objects or`process` objects to
#'   wait on. (They can be mixed as well.) If this is a named list, then
#'   the returned list will have the same names. This simplifies the
#'   identification of the processes.
#' @param ms Integer scalar, a timeout for the polling, in milliseconds.
#'   Supply -1 for an infitite timeout, and 0 for not waiting at all.
#' @return A list of character vectors of length one or three.
#'   There is one list element for each connection/process, in the same
#'   order as in the input list. For connections the result is a single
#'   string scalar. For processes the character vectors' elements are named
#'   `output`, `error` and `process`. Possible values for each individual
#'   result are: `nopipe`, `ready`, `timeout`, `closed`, `silent`.
#'   See details about these below. `process` refers to the poll connection,
#'   see the `poll_connection` argument of the `process` initializer.
