Description: Missing manly parts of UNIX API for Python
Eunuchs is a library of Python extension that complement the standard
libraries in parts where full support for the UNIX API (or the Linux
API) is missing.
Most of the functions wrapped by Eunuchs are low-level, dirty, but
absolutely necessary functions for real systems programming. The aim is
to have the functions added to mainstream Python libraries.
Current list of functions included:
- recvmsg(2) and sendmsg(2), including use of cmsg(3)
This is a dummy package that depends on the correct version of
python-eunuchs for the default version of Python.
