Issue #1 resolved

Incompatibility with pip requirements.txt

created an issue

First, thanks for gipc! It works well.

If gevent and gipc are both in a requirements.txt file, the install blows up:

Downloading/unpacking gipc==0.3.0 (from -r requirements.txt (line 28))
  Running egg_info for package gipc
    Extracting in /tmp/tmpCdsWtq
    Now working in /tmp/tmpCdsWtq/distribute-0.6.34
    Building a Distribute egg in /home/createabid/flask/build/gipc
     Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<string>", line 16, in <module>

        from gipc import __version__ as gipcversion
      File "gipc/", line 9, in <module>
        from gipc import pipe, start_process, GIPCError, GIPCClosed, GIPCLocked
      File "gipc/", line 32, in <module>
        import gevent
    ImportError: No module named gevent
    Complete output from command python egg_info:

It appears that the problem is the file is not handling the egg_info command correctly (used by pip in the first phase of the installation process).
