threading2: like the standard threading module, but awesomer. This module is designed as a drop-in replacement and extension for the default "threading" module. It has two main objectives: * implement primitives using native platform functionality where possible * expose more sophisticated functionality where it can be done uniformly The following extensions are currently implemented: * ability to set (advisory) thread priority * ability to set (advisory) CPU affinity at thread and process level * thread groups for simultaneous management of multiple threads * SHLock class for shared/exclusive (also known as read/write) locks The following API niceties are also included: * all blocking methods take a "timeout" argument and return a success code * all exposed objects are actual classes and can be safely subclassed This has currently only been tested on WinXP and Ubuntu Karmic; similar platforms *should* work OK, and other platforms *should* fall back to using sensible default behaviour, but I'm not making any guarantees at this stage. Additional planned extensions include: * make stack_size a kwarg when creating a thread * native events, semaphores and timed waits on win32 * native conditions and timed waits on pthreads platforms * native SHLock implementations (SRW on Win Vista+, pthread_rwlock)
