"""Automatically restart the server when a source file is modified.

Most applications should not access this module directly.  Instead,
pass the keyword argument ``autoreload=True`` to the
`tornado.web.Application` constructor (or ``debug=True``, which
enables this setting and several others).  This will enable autoreload
mode as well as checking for changes to templates and static
resources.  Note that restarting is a destructive operation and any
requests in progress will be aborted when the process restarts.  (If
you want to disable autoreload while using other debug-mode features,
pass both ``debug=True`` and ``autoreload=False``).

This module can also be used as a command-line wrapper around scripts
such as unit test runners.  See the `main` method for details.

The command-line wrapper and Application debug modes can be used together.
This combination is encouraged as the wrapper catches syntax errors and
other import-time failures, while debug mode catches changes once
the server has started.

This module will not work correctly when `.HTTPServer`'s multi-process
mode is used.

Reloading loses any Python interpreter command-line arguments (e.g. ``-u``)
because it re-executes Python using ``sys.executable`` and ``sys.argv``.
Additionally, modifying these variables will cause reloading to behave

# 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/".  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/, the directory containing
# 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 reconstructing the original command
# line (Python >= 3.4) or by setting the $PYTHONPATH environment
# variable (Python < 3.4) 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__.

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().
