OS module in Python provides functions for interacting with the operating system. OS comes under Python’s standard utility modules. This module provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality.
os.get_inheritable() method in Python is used to get the value of inheritable flag of the specified file descriptor.
Inheritable flag of a file descriptor tells that if it can be inherited by the child processes or not. For example: if the parent process has a file descriptor 4 in use for a particular file and parent creates a child process then the child process will also have file descriptor 4 in use for that same file, if the inheritable flag of the file descriptor 4 in the parent process is set.
fd: A file descriptor whose inheritable flag is to be checked.
Return Type: This method returns a Boolean value of class bool which represents the value of inheritable flag of the specified file descriptor.
Value of inheritable flag: False Value of inheritable flag: True
