setdefault threadsafe?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Cole Tuininga, Aug 24, 2004.

  1. Quick question for y'all - is a dict's setdefault call threadsafe?

    In other words, if I have code like the following:

    tmp = someObj()

    result = dictname.setdefault( key, tmp )

    is it going to behave "correctly" in a threaded environment?

    Thanks in advance.
