Add/Remove Channels in Asyncore?

I've implemented a real basic IRC client class in 100 lines using
asynchat (yes I know about Twisted). The problem I'm having is
arbitrarily starting and stopping multiple instances of this class
after I call loop().

The asyncore docs seem to imply everything's fixed in stone once loop()
is called, where they say, "Once the initial channel(s) is(are)
created, calling the loop() function activates channel service, which
continues until the last channel (including any that have been added to
the map during asynchronous service) is closed."

After I call asyncore.loop() , I'd like to be able to add/remove clients
("channels"? ) to/from execution by asyncore. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Chris

the usual way to do that is to add new channels in callbacks, in
response to other server activities.

if you want to deal with this from the program calling asyncore.loop,
use the "count" option to tell loop to return after N events. e.g:

while 1:
asyncore.loop(0 .05, count=20) # wait for max 1 second
add/remove channels here

In order to learn sockets in Python I am trying to write a simple group chat server and client. I need a little nudge, please. My question contains some GUI but only as decoration. The root question is asyncore / asynchat. I have read that twisted makes this all simple, but, I wanted to get my hands dirty here for educational purposes. I've managed to build a small echo server with asyncore and asynchat that can handle any number of...

Hi peeps, I finally got around recently to doing something serious using Python for serving network clients asynchronously, deciding on asyncore as my starting point. After 2 days or so of fiddling about, I have decided, as many before me have, that the current asyncore module is the most inflexible, brain-dead, and useless module to be found on the face of the earth!

Hi, I've been mangling python-irclib into an asyncore class, so it fits in nicely with the rest of my app. I ran into a problem with asyncore.dispatcher_with_send (Python 2.3.4), though. Not sure if this is the right place to file a bug, but here goes: class dispatcher_with_send(dispatcher):

This is for folks who are familiar with asynchronous event handling in Python using the asyncore module. If you have ever used the asyncore module, you will realize that it's event loop does not have a programmable exit condition. It keeps looping till the channels in its socket map (a dictionary) are closed and don't have any pending reads/writes. If you are using Python threads in your application, by using either the threading or...

Changes in asyncore from 2.3 to 2.4 mean that asyncore.poll() now passes all the sockets in the map to select.select() to be checked for errors, which is probably a good thing. If an error occurs, then handle_expt() is called, which by default logs the error. asyncore.dispatcher creates nonblocking sockets. When connect_ex() is called on a nonblocking socket, it will probably return EWOULDBLOCK (connecting takes time), which may mean...

I have a problem with python's asyncore module throwing a bad file descriptor error. The code might be difficult to copy here, but the problem is essentially: The server wants to sever the connection of an open Asyncore socket. Calling the socket.close() nor the socket.shutdown(2) calls seem to work. The only way I can close the connection without creating the error below is to have the client close the connection. I have the...

Hi all. I've just terminated a server application using asyncore / asynchat frameworks. I wrote a test script that performs a lot of connections to the server app and I discovered that asyncore (or better, select()) can manage only a limited number of file descriptors (aka simultaneous connections). When this number is reached select() raises an error but asyncore doesn't handle this exception (a crash occurs). If you want to try this I...

Hi, I post this message here in the hope someone using asyncore could review this. Since the thing I miss mostly in asyncore is a system for calling a function after a certain amount of time, I spent the last 3 days trying to implement this with the hopes that this could be included in asyncore in the the future.
