This package allows one to access the System V Interprocess
communication mechanisms from within Python:
+ message queues;
+ semaphore sets;
+ shared memory segments.
This plug-in serves primarily two use cases:
+ parallel (multiprocess) computing;
+ mixed applications (e.g. python/yorick).
A sibling package is available for Yorick: yorick-svipc
