unbound methods

I wrote a small class today at work playing with sockets in command
line windows. When attempting to call the handle function, I get a
TypeError. "Unbound method handle() must be called with connection
instance as first argument (got nothing instead). Any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'd suggest that you post some actual code plus traceback so we don't have
to guess.

That happens if you call a (normal) method on the class instead of on an
instance.
>>class A:
.... def method(self, *args): print args
....

This works:
>>A().method(42 )
(42,)

while this doesn't:
>>A.method(42 )
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: unbound method method() must be called with A instance as first
argument (got int instance instead)

For details you need to post some code illustrating the problem.

Hi, I was recently writing a python interpreter (in python), partly to teach myself more about the python object system, and partly to learn more about how programming languages work in general. I started with the getattribute/descriptor system as it seems that this is in many ways the "core" of the interpreter, and have come across a few questions.

Can someone give me a quick rundown on the difference between bound and unbound methods? I ran into an error regarding an unbound method, and found lots of discussions about changing Python behavior regarding them, but haven't come across these descriptions in any of my reading material so far. Thanks!

I am trying to structure a Tkinter application with classes instead of just with simple functions, but I'm not sure how to call methods from my main class. My main class is packetstreamApp().

Hi all, Unfortunately I am quite a novice with Access!! I've created a number of data bases for my work however becuase my skills are limited to really built in functionality and wizards my programs are not really user friendly. I have searched and searched and tried numerous times to get the following right to no avail - and I think its really becuase of my lack of understanding.

I'm currently using code like this to create unbound methods from functions and stick them into classes: method = new.instancemethod(raw_func, None, cls) setattr(cls, name, method) Ok, python 2.6, run with the -3 flag, gives a warning that the new module is going away in python 3.0, so the equivalent code is: method = types.MethodType(raw_func, None, cls)

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
