yes, but this whole thing is very ambiguous. I entered non-blocking at
www.dictionary.com which was not found, but the "Reference suggestions"
show all three ways of writing it (1 x nonblocking, 1 x non blocking and
3 x non-blocking). And try to click on "non blocking" - it leads to a
webpage with that only lists non-blocking. This is very unclear to me.

Do you know a way to access MLA or APA online? This is getting
interesting! I don't even know a rule how to do this in German. It would
be interesting to know if there is a rule in English. 

Actually, try "cat /usr/share/dict/words | grep blocking" on your
machine (not that this would mean anything more).

I guess we will have (an amusing) vote on this in Chicago!

All the Best,
