[openssl-users] Issue with select after SSL_get_wfd

UDP is a datagram service - think of it as “fire and forget”. So the sending socket will not know if or when the packet has been delivered to the receiver, let alone that it has been consumed. You could, of course, create your own application level acks and retries etcetera, but before you know it you are rebuilding TCP.
See e.g. https://www.diffen.com/difference/TCP_vs_UDP <https://www.diffen.com/difference/TCP_vs_UDP> for a comparison between UDP and TCP.
