asq is simple implementation of a LINQ-inspired API for Python which operates over Python iterables, including a parallel version implemented in terms of the Python standard library multiprocessing module. The API sports feature equivalence with LINQ for objects, 100% statement test coverage and comprehensive documentation. asq provides a fluent interface making extensive use of method chaining to create complex queries without compromising readability. asq works with Python 2.6 and higher, including Python 3. It has been tested on Python 2.6, Python 2.7, Python 3.1 and Python 3.2. It is also tested on IronPython 2.6 and IronPython 2.7.
