jit-open: Just in time open files..
# Just in time open files. This package provides a way to delay opening files until the something is written to the file handle. This can be convenient when opening a large number of files of which most of them will not be frequently used. To deal with resource limits a queue is used from which, when full, the least frequent file is closed.
## Installation Via [pypi](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/jit-open):
pip install jit_open
git clone https://git.lumc.nl/j.f.j.laros/jit-open.git cd jit_open pip install .
## Library The library provides the Handle and Queue classes. Full documentation can be found [here](https://git.lumc.nl/j.f.j.laros/jit-open).
### Usage In the following example, only the file used.txt is created.
`python >>> from jit_open import Handle, Queue >>> >>> queue = Queue() >>> used = Handle("used.txt", queue) >>> unused = Handle("unused.txt", queue) >>> >>> used.write("line 1\n") >>> used.write("line 2\n") `
