Simple thread module to repetitively perform a task on a single thread

Project Description

Python thread module to repeat an predefined task on a thread mulitple times. A TaskThread is useful when a task needs to be repeated several times on a separate thread. Normal usage of the threading.Thread class would call for creation of a new thread each time the same task needs to be run. This module allows for repetitive tasks to be run multiple times on the same thread by having the thread wait until the task needs to be executed again.

Provided Classes

taskthread.TaskThread`
A sub-class of threading.Thread that may execute a single task multiple times without the overhead of starting a new thread.
taskthread.TaskInProcessException
Exception that is thrown if a task is started on a thread that is already executing.

Installation

taskthread may be installed by executing pip install taskthread.
