However, where Java makes locks and condition variables basic behavior of every object, they are separate objects in Python. Thread-local data is data whose values are thread specific. To manage thread-local data, just create an instance of local or a subclass and store attributes on it:. The Thread class represents an activity that is run in a separate thread of control. There are two ways to specify the activity: by passing a callable object to the constructor, or by overriding the run method in a subclass. No other methods except for the constructor should be overridden in a subclass.
This invokes the run method in a separate thread of control. It stops being alive when its run method terminates — either normally, or by raising an unhandled exception. This blocks the calling thread until the thread whose join method is called is terminated. A thread has a name. The name can be passed to the constructor, and read or changed through the name attribute. The significance of this flag is that the entire Python program exits when only daemon threads are left.
The initial value is inherited from the creating thread. The flag can be set through the daemon property or the daemon constructor argument.
Use threads to...
Daemon threads are abruptly stopped at shutdown. Their resources such as open files, database transactions, etc. If you want your threads to stop gracefully, make them non-daemonic and use a suitable signalling mechanism such as an Event. It is not a daemon thread. Dummy thread objects have limited functionality; they are always considered alive and daemonic, and cannot be join ed. They are never deleted, since it is impossible to detect the termination of alien threads.
Defaults to None , meaning nothing is called. Defaults to. If not None , daemon explicitly sets whether the thread is daemonic. If None the default , the daemonic property is inherited from the current thread.
If the subclass overrides the constructor, it must make sure to invoke the base class constructor Thread. It must be called at most once per thread object. This method will raise a RuntimeError if called more than once on the same thread object. You may override this method in a subclass. Wait until the thread terminates. This blocks the calling thread until the thread whose join method is called terminates — either normally or through an unhandled exception — or until the optional timeout occurs.
When the timeout argument is present and not None , it should be a floating point number specifying a timeout for the operation in seconds or fractions thereof. When the timeout argument is not present or None , the operation will block until the thread terminates. A thread can be join ed many times. It is also an error to join a thread before it has been started and attempts to do so raise the same exception.
A string used for identification purposes only. It has no semantics. Multiple threads may be given the same name. The initial name is set by the constructor. The identifier is available even after the thread has exited. This method returns True just before the run method starts until just after the run method terminates. The module function enumerate returns a list of all alive threads.
A boolean value indicating whether this thread is a daemon thread True or not False. This must be set before start is called, otherwise RuntimeError is raised. CPython implementation detail: In CPython, due to the Global Interpreter Lock , only one thread can execute Python code at once even though certain performance-oriented libraries might overcome this limitation.
If you want your application to make better use of the computational resources of multi-core machines, you are advised to use multiprocessing or concurrent. A primitive lock is a synchronization primitive that is not owned by a particular thread when locked. It is created in the unlocked state.
It has two basic methods, acquire and release. When the state is unlocked, acquire changes the state to locked and returns immediately. When the state is locked, acquire blocks until a call to release in another thread changes it to unlocked, then the acquire call resets it to locked and returns. The release method should only be called in the locked state; it changes the state to unlocked and returns immediately.
If an attempt is made to release an unlocked lock, a RuntimeError will be raised. Locks also support the context management protocol. When more than one thread is blocked in acquire waiting for the state to turn to unlocked, only one thread proceeds when a release call resets the state to unlocked; which one of the waiting threads proceeds is not defined, and may vary across implementations.
The class implementing primitive lock objects. Once a thread has acquired a lock, subsequent attempts to acquire it block, until it is released; any thread may release it. Note that Lock is actually a factory function which returns an instance of the most efficient version of the concrete Lock class that is supported by the platform.
When invoked with the blocking argument set to True the default , block until the lock is unlocked, then set it to locked and return True. When invoked with the blocking argument set to False , do not block. If a call with blocking set to True would block, return False immediately; otherwise, set the lock to locked and return True. When invoked with the floating-point timeout argument set to a positive value, block for at most the number of seconds specified by timeout and as long as the lock cannot be acquired.
A timeout argument of -1 specifies an unbounded wait. It is forbidden to specify a timeout when blocking is false. The return value is True if the lock is acquired successfully, False if not for example if the timeout expired. Release a lock.
This can be called from any thread, not only the thread which has acquired the lock. When the lock is locked, reset it to unlocked, and return. If any other threads are blocked waiting for the lock to become unlocked, allow exactly one of them to proceed. When invoked on an unlocked lock, a RuntimeError is raised. A reentrant lock is a synchronization primitive that may be acquired multiple times by the same thread. In the locked state, some thread owns the lock; in the unlocked state, no thread owns it.
To lock the lock, a thread calls its acquire method; this returns once the thread owns the lock. To unlock the lock, a thread calls its release method. Reentrant locks also support the context management protocol. This class implements reentrant lock objects. A reentrant lock must be released by the thread that acquired it. Once a thread has acquired a reentrant lock, the same thread may acquire it again without blocking; the thread must release it once for each time it has acquired it.
Note that RLock is actually a factory function which returns an instance of the most efficient version of the concrete RLock class that is supported by the platform.
When invoked without arguments: if this thread already owns the lock, increment the recursion level by one, and return immediately. Otherwise, if another thread owns the lock, block until the lock is unlocked.

Trivia The film was first commissioned by the Director-General of the BBC Alasdair Milne , after he watched The War Game , which had not been shown on the BBC when it was made, due to pressure from the Wilson government, although it had had a limited release in cinemas. Goofs Mr Beckett, after 2 weeks in a cellar with no running water, still wears a clean shirt with ironing or packet fold marks on it and a spotless waistcoat with no dust. Quotes Mrs. Beckett : Ruth Ruth, love But you'll have to, love, it's not just you now, you know, the baby needs some food as well.
Ruth Beckett : [ crying ] I can't care about this baby anymore, I wish it was dead. Beckett : Oh Ruth! Don't say things like that. Ruth Beckett : There's no point!
Threads: the film that frightened me most
There's no point with Jimmy dead. Beckett : But you don't know he's dead, love Ruth Beckett : He is! He is! I KNOW he is! Beckett : You can't be certain.

A very humbling movie and something that the millennial generation must see to understand what life is when the very little things we take for granted are lost and make no mistake about the aftermath of a Nuclear war, this is it.
