I've been investigating the possibility of hard real time software development with Python. From some brief research, I've come up with the following:
* A Real Time OS is required.
* The .NET framework apparently cannot be used in hard real time software.
* Windows is not a RTOS, however there is a real time Linux kernel (Which I can install with Ubuntu!).
Assuming I do have an RTOS available, I might be able to use Python if:
* I turn off GC
* I don't create referential cycles
* I avoid using threads
* I use some best practices for real time software development.
* I read a good book on HRT software development.
I'm hoping that I can somehow get access (in Python) to high resolution timer and integrate that into my fibra framework so I can add some temporal based tests/constraints for individual tasklets.
Has anyone done this sort of thing with Python before? I'm looking for advice. I'm willing to consider other languages and platforms if they fit.
