FTP (ftplib) output capture

Hi

Has anyone caputerd the output from the std ftp lib? It seems a bit
annoying that everything is printed to stdout. It means incorporating
this into any real program is a problem. It would have been much better
if they used the std logging module and hooked up a console logger for
the feault ftp application. Alas it isnt that way.

Capturing stdout like this??? :

import sys

sys.stdout = open('bb', 'w)

But I want to re-route it to the logging module not a file , so do I
need to write a steam object?

Thanks,

ftplib pre-dates the standard logging system by a bit.

I think ftplib only prints stuff if you set its (the FTP class
instances') debug level to greater than 0.

If you really want to replace sys.stdout with something that passes the
data to a logger, then something like the following (untested) class
should do it:

class FileLog:
def __init__(self, log):
self.log = log
def write(self, data):
self.log.debug( data)

The best solution might be to subclass or rewrite FTP to really do what
you want. I believe one of the goals of Python-3000 is better
integration of the standard library with the new-ish standard logging
system, so if you do a good job send it in. ;-)

Peace,

Hi: I want to write a procedure to automatically upload some files for me, but I'm getting stuck. Before I write my own gruesome put() function, I wanted to check if there is an easier way.

Hi all, I've come across a problem that has me stumped, and I thought I'd send a message to the gurus to see if this makes sense to anyone else. =) Basically, I'm trying to upload a series of files via FTP. I'm using ftplib to do it, and for each file I'm using transfercmd("STOR " + myfile) to get the socket, then uploading 4096 bytes at a time and providing status updates via a GUI interface. Finally, I close the socket, set it to...

Hi all, I'm using ftplib to transfer large files to remote sites. The process seems to work perfectly with small files, but when the file gets to large ~20GB I begin getting errors that sometimes seem to be non- fatal, and other times the transfer does not complete. I've debugged the hell out of the code, and can't figure out what is going on..is it the remote site? Packet loss? Traceback (most recent call last):
