Cooperative threading based utilities

Project description

Build Status Test coverage Latest PyPI version Documentation Status


The cothread Python library is designed for building tools using cooperative threading. This means that, with care, programs can effectively run several tasks simultaneously.

The cothread.catools library is designed to support easy channel access from Python, and makes essential use of the features of cooperative threads – in particular, catools.camonitor() notifies updates in the background.

See the documentation for more details.
