On Windows, Python comes with the msvcrt module which provides interaces to some MSVCRT specific routines, notably those used to switch file descriptors and streams between text and binary modes.
The EMX runtime provides similar routines, plus some others which support Extented Attribute (EA) access and opening files with particular sharing modes.
The emxrt module provide access to these EMX runtime facilities. The source should build with any of the EMX Python ports since Python 2.1.x.

to build); 8,794 bytes;
NOTE: I am no longer in a position to support any of my OS/2 ports or software. The software packages will stay available from this site for the time being but will be removed at some point in the future. 19Jan2017
