asynchat — Asynchronous socket command/response handler
asyncore — Asynchronous socket handler
mmap — Memory-mapped file support
Memory-mapped file objects behave like both
file objects. You can use mmap objects in most places where
are expected; for example, you can use the
module to search through a memory-mapped file. You can also change a single byte by doing
obj[index] = 97, or change a subsequence by assigning to a slice:
obj[i1:i2] = b'...'. You can also read and write data starting at the current file position, and
seek() through the file to different positions.
signal — Set handlers for asynchronous events
This module provides mechanisms to use signal handlers in Python.
socket — Low-level networking interface
ssl — TLS/SSL wrapper for socket objects
