Threading Example in Python

Running multiple threads in Python is actually quite simple:

import threading
def print_items(items, thread_name=None):
    print "Thread %s started..." % thread_name
    print items
    print "Thread %s ended..." % thread_name
for i in xrange(10):
    items = range(10)
    # Create a new thread which will run print_items, passing in args and kwargs. Starts immediately.
    threading.Thread(target=print_items, args=[items], kwargs={'thread_name': i}).start()
