New in version 3.4.
Source code: Lib/asyncio/
This module provides infrastructure for writing single-threaded concurrent code using coroutines, multiplexing I/O access over sockets and other resources, running network clients and servers, and other related primitives. Here is a more detailed list of the package contents:
Futureclass that mimics the one in the
concurrent.futuresmodule, but adapted for use with the event loop;
yield from(PEP 380), to help write concurrent code in a sequential fashion;
Futures and coroutines;
Asynchronous programming is more complex than classical “sequential” programming: see the Develop with asyncio page which lists common traps and explains how to avoid them. Enable the debug mode during development to detect common issues.
