This module provides a duplicate interface to the thread module. It is meant to be imported when the thread module is not provided on a platform.
Suggested usage is:
try: import thread as _thread except ImportError: import dummy_thread as _thread
Be careful to not use this module where deadlock might occur from a thread being created that blocks waiting for another thread to be created. This often occurs with blocking I/O.See About this document... for information on suggesting changes.
