On Linux, we set up our apps to catch SIGTERM:
"""install a handler for SIGTERM, providing clean shutdown"""
def signal_handler(foo, bar):
sys.stderr.write("Got SIGTERM, shutting down")
return signal.signal(signal.SIGTERM, signal_handler)
where self is the object that takes over from your main().
IIRC Wing has a menu that allows sending signals to the debug process. Using
SIGTERM to mean please quit/exit/shutdown is standard UNIX - works with init
scripts, kill/top, etc..
