Controlling Services with Python

As a further introduction to Windows NT Services, we will discuss some of the functions available from Python to control existing services.

As is common with Python extensions, there are two Python modules that can work with services: The win32service module implements the Win32 service functions, while the win32serviceutil module provides some handy utilities that utilize the raw API. We begin with a discussion of the Win32 functions exposed by the win32service module before moving to some of the utilities.
