Medusa provides a framework for implementing asynchronous socket-based servers for TCP/IP, and on Unix, Unix domain sockets. The first release includes HTTP, FTP, and 'monitor' (remote python interpreter) servers. Medusa can simultaneously support several instances of either the same or different server types - for example you could start up two HTTP servers, an FTP server, and a monitor server. Then you could connect to the monitor server to control and manipulate medusa while it is running.
Tkinter is Python's de facto standard GUI (Graphical User Interface) package. It is a thin object-oriented layer on top of Tcl/Tk. To use Tkinter, you don't need to write Tcl code, but you will need to consult the Tk documentation and occasionally the Tcl documentation (since Tk's low-level event handling mechanism is considered part of Tcl).
Python to C Module Generator was designed to aid in the conversion of Python modules to C extension modules while keeping the same interface into the module. This makes it easier to convert existing Python code into C code, giving it a speed boost without changing to existing code.
