pytipc - A TIPC module for Python
Alberto Bertogli (

TIPC ( is a network protocol designed for use in clustered
computer environments, allowing designers to create applications that can
communicate quickly and reliably with other applications regardless of their
location within the cluster.

This project provides a way to use TIPC inside Python using a socket-alike

Hopefully, TIPC support will be incorporated into the Python socket module
sometime in the future and this project will no longer be necessary; but until
then, here it is.

Most documentation is in the form of docstrings inside the code; but the
structure and usage is quite similar to the "socket" module.

To install the module, use the standard "python install" procedure.
