Python module for running tasks within a limited amount of threads
Descriptions can be found in the markdown README.
- start_thread now returns the Thread object
- Added ThreadStarter Class. This class can run a separate thread for the sole purpose of starting threads with MaxThreads
- Removed ThreadStarter Class because the new way start_thread is written makes this class obsolete (it no longer blocks while waiting for a thread to become available).
- Added the ability to prioritize tasks started by start_thread
- Changed how the stop function works also added a start function that can be called after stop to restart
- The priority variable can now be a tuple
- Changed name of start_thread to the more accurate add_task (the old name can still be used)
- Fixed bug in the stop function where it wouldn’t work if the priority variable in previously added tasks still in the queue was anything else than an integer.
- Fixed bug in the empty_queue where it would empty the queue then block indefinitely.
- Removed start function because tasks are now deleted in the stop function.
- Added get_task_queue_count function
- Fixed bug where a new thread could close before being added to the threads list
- Fixed bug where add_task wouldn’t start a new thread when it should
