SocketServer class - basis problem

So I'm new to this python stuff - and this has me stumped

# server
import SocketServer

PORT = 8037

class myRequestHandle r(SocketServer. StreamRequestHa ndler):
def handle(self):
self.input = self.rfile.read (1024)
print self.input
self.wfile.writ e("blah")

server = SocketServer.TC PServer(("", PORT), myRequestHandle r)
print "listening on port", PORT
server.serve_fo rever()

# client
import socket

HOST = socket.gethostn ame()
PORT = 8037

s = socket.socket(s ocket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STR EAM)
s.connect((HOST , PORT))
s.send('Hello, world')

# Fails
data = s.recv(1024)

print 'Received', data

Why does s.recv() hang the client? It seems like server is not
handing back "blah", but I'm sure it is.....this should be

Hello, Leonard,
data = s.recv(1024)
print 'Received', data

Why does s.recv() hang the client? It seems like server is not
handing back "blah", but I'm sure it is..... I think that the socket buffer is not full (since you are waiting for
1024 and "blah" is not enough).
this should be easy...(sigh)

If it was that easy it won't be interesting ;-)

Have a look at http://www.amk.ca/python/howto/sockets/

1024 and "blah" is not enough).

This is not how the size parameter to recv() is used. It is a
*maximum*, meaning any amount of data from zero bytes (if the
socket is closed) to that value will be returned, with *no*
guarantees how much is actually returned. Often, but absolutely
not always, you will get a whole "line" and newbies will be
deceived into thinking it's enough just to recv(1024) and
carry on, but eventually such code will fail.

Let's say you have a SocketServer with the threading mix-in and you run serve_forever on it. How can you shut it down, or rather, how can it even shut itself down? Even if you use a handle_request loop instead of serve_forever, it still seems difficult: class myserver(ThreadingMixIn, TCPServer): pass server = myserver(...) server.shutdown = False while not server.shutdown: server.handle_request()

I have a socket server like below which I want to exit when it's out of data. If I interrupt the client, I'll get a broken pipe on the server side, and after a Ctrl-C, I can restart the server again, but if I let it run out of data, and exit via handle_error as can be seen below, I will get a socket.error: (98, 'Address already in use') when I try to restart the server. (Unless I wait a minute or so, or use another port.) I feel like I'm...

Hello, I have a small wxPython application. Today I was trying to add some RPC capability to it, so I implemented an instance of SimpleXMLRPCServer that runs in a separate thread when invoked and answers requests. All went fine until I realized that I have to sometimes stop the server - which is where I ran into a problem. Python threads can not be killed after they've been started. They can be kindly requested to
