14. Generic Operating System Services

The modules described in this chapter provide interfaces to operating system features that are available on (almost) all operating systems, such as files and a clock. The interfaces are generally modeled after the Unix or C interfaces, but they are available on most other systems as well. Here's an overview:

os   Miscellaneous operating system interfaces.
time   Time access and conversions.
optparse   More convenient, flexible, and powerful command-line parsing library.
getopt   Portable parser for command line options; support both short and long option names.
logging   Logging module for Python based on PEP 282.
getpass   Portable reading of passwords and retrieval of the userid.
curses   An interface to the curses library, providing portable terminal handling.
curses.textpad   Emacs-like input editing in a curses window.
curses.wrapper   Terminal configuration wrapper for curses programs.
curses.ascii   Constants and set-membership functions for ASCII characters.
curses.panel   A panel stack extension that adds depth to curses windows.
platform   Retrieves as much platform identifying data as possible.
errno   Standard errno system symbols.
ctypes   A foreign function library for Python.
