This is my first time playing with python threads, and I am a little at
a loss how to start. Here is what I need to do:
I need three threads (at least):
1. Every .1 second, retrieves some data via http from an adjacent
machine on the network. Easy enough with urllib.
2. Do processing on that data
3. Every .1 second, be ready to spit out the most recent results from
the processing in response to an http query. I've got the latest medusa
distribution, and I was thinking about using that. It doesn't really
As you can see, I have two things that have soft real-time deadlines,
and one thing that I want to do as fast as possible, but doesn't need to
be real time. This sounds like a job for threads.
I can do each of the individual parts, but I don't know how to combine
them all so that each is running in a different thread, so that process
2 doesn't make the other two lose their timing.
Thanks in advance,
