Chan for Python, lovingly stolen from Go

Project description

# Go-style Chan for Python

Implements Go's chan type in Python.

Install with `pip install chan`

## Usage

You can `put` onto channels, and `get` from them:

```Python
c = Chan()

# Thread 1
c.put("Hello")

# Thread 2
print "Heard: %s" % c.get()
```

Channels can be closed (usually by the sender.
Iterating over a channel gives all values until the channel is closed:

```Python
c = Chan()

# Thread 1
c.put("It's")
c.put("just")
c.put("contradiction")

# Thread 2
for thing in c:
print "Heard:", thing
```

You can wait on multiple channels using `chanselect`. Pass it a list of input channels and another of output channels, and it will return when any of the channels is ready.

```Python
def fan_in(outchan, input1, input2):
while True:
chan, value = chanselect([input1, input2], [])
if chan == input1:
outchan.put("From 1: " + str(value))
else:
outchan.put("From 2 " + str(value))
```

You can see more examples in the "examples" directory.
