Backport of the new select module with epoll and kqueue interface

Project description

The select_backport extension is a backport of the new API functions of Python 2.7/SVN for Python 2.3 to 2.6. It contains object oriented wrappers for epoll (Linux 2.6) and kqueue/kevent (BSD).

>>> try:
...     import select_backport as select
... except ImportError:
...     import select
>>> ep = select.epoll()
>>> kq = select.kqueue()

This release is based upon Python svn.

NOTE: I made this package because python2.5 and python2.6 lacked features I’m using from select.kqueue and the select26 package isn’t being maintained.
