"""A module to automatically restart the server when a module is modified.

Most applications should not call this module directly.  Instead, pass the
keyword argument ``debug=True`` to the `tornado.web.Application` constructor.
This will enable autoreload mode as well as checking for changes to templates
and static resources.

This module depends on IOLoop, so it will not work in WSGI applications
and Google AppEngine.  It also will not work correctly when HTTPServer's
multi-process mode is used.

# sys.path handling
# -----------------
#
# If a module is run with "python -m", the current directory (i.e. "")
# is automatically prepended to sys.path, but not if it is run as
# "path/to/file.py".  The processing for "-m" rewrites the former to
# the latter, so subsequent executions won't have the same path as the
# original.
#
# Conversely, when run as path/to/file.py, the directory containing
# file.py gets added to the path, which can cause confusion as imports
# may become relative in spite of the future import.
#
# We address the former problem by setting the $PYTHONPATH environment
# variable before re-execution so the new process will see the correct
# path.  We attempt to address the latter problem when tornado.autoreload
# is run as __main__, although we can't fix the general case because
# we cannot reliably reconstruct the original command line
# (http://bugs.python.org/issue14208).

if __name__ == "__main__":
    # This sys.path manipulation must come before our imports (as much
    # as possible - if we introduced a tornado.sys or tornado.os
    # module we'd be in trouble), or else our imports would become
    # relative again despite the future import.
    #
    # There is a separate __main__ block at the end of the file to call main().
