Vmaps

Versatile Python windows on mmap()

First released in January 2002, re-released 2019-02-27 for purely historical interest.

This came to my attention today:

https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/multiprocessing.shared_memory.html

... and I said, "I had that 17 years ago. But better." With multi-platform atomic operations for multiprocess synchronization.

With code that served my purposes but apparently din't meet anyone else's needs. With the thousand line pre-processor macro that my compiler authority buddies assured me was a crime against humanity.

Anyway, if anyone wants to look at this, here it is. See the docs and if for some reason you need to run the code, good luck.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
