System call select()

Hey everyone,
I am working on the select system call, I am looking for a sample piece of code that demonstrates the meaning of select() and how it has to be used. Also a little information regarding "What is multiplexed I/O?", A small example would be helpful that demonstrates the basic usage of select(). Thanks.
