Python GIL

Reported by Paul J. Davis | March 25th, 2009 @ 07:01 PM

similar to using the appropriate request calls I need to unlock and lock the GIL appropriately when I'm inside the JS VM. I'll need to take special care in pyobject.c when JS calls enter back into Python land.

This is a preliminary maybe sort of thing. I could see it being possible that acquiring and freeing the GIL to fast may cause things to slow down.

    • Tag changed from gil, python to gil, maybeforbounty, python
    • State changed from “new” to “hold”

    I'm gonna ignore this for a long time. And by long time I mean until I get a patch or a comission. Because of how the request begin/end stuff works it'll get rather confusing when I'm coming in and out of JavaScript.

Python/JavaScript bridge module, making use of Mozilla's spidermonkey JavaScript implementation. Allows implementation of JavaScript classes, objects and functions in Python, and evaluation and calling of JavaScript scripts and functions respectively. Borrows heavily from Claes Jacobssen's Javascript Perl module, in turn based on Mozilla's 'PerlConnect' Perl binding.
