Difference between queues and pipes in multiprocessing

Discussion in 'Python' started by Navkirat Singh, Aug 4, 2010.

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering what are the differences between queues and pipes implemented using multiprocessing python module. Am I correct if I say, in pipes, if another process writes to one receiving end concurrently, then an error will be raised and in queues the later processes data will just queued up?

    Thanks
    Nav
