Overview

The goal of this module is to offer a queue system using the underlying filesystem for storage, security and to prevent race conditions via atomic operations. It focuses on simplicity, robustness and scalability.

This module allows multiple concurrent readers and writers to interact with the same queue. A Perl implementation of the same algorithm is available at http://search.cpan.org/dist/Directory-Queue/ and a Java implementation at https://github.com/cern-mig/java-dirq so readers and writers can be written in different programming languages.

Install

To install this module, run the following commands:

python setup.py test
python setup.py install
