Networking and Interprocess Communication
The modules described in this chapter provide mechanisms for networking and inter-processes communication.
Some modules only work for two processes that are on the same machine, e.g.
mmap. Other modules support networking protocols that two or more processes can use to communicate across machines.
The list of modules described in this chapter is:
asyncio— Asynchronous I/O
socket— Low-level networking interface
ssl— TLS/SSL wrapper for socket objects
select— Waiting for I/O completion
selectors— High-level I/O multiplexing
asyncore— Asynchronous socket handler
asynchat— Asynchronous socket command/response handler
signal— Set handlers for asynchronous events
mmap— Memory-mapped file support
