I would need to make some high-reliability software
running on Linux in an embedded system. Performance
(or lack of it) is not an issue, reliability is.
The piece of software is rather simple, probably a
few hundred lines of code in Python. There is a need
to interact with network using the socket module,
and then probably a need to do something hardware-
related which will get its own driver written in
Threading and other more error-prone techniques can
be left aside, everything can run in one thread with
a poll loop.
The software should be running continously for
practically forever (at least a year without a reboot).
Is the Python interpreter (on Linux) stable and
leak-free enough to achieve this?
