passing arguments to tcpserver classes

P: n/a
Is there an easy way to pass arguments to a handler class that is used
by the standard TCPServer?

normally --srvr =SocketServer.TCPServer(('',port_num), TCPHandlerClass)

I'd like to be able to: srvr =SocketServer.TCPServer(('',port_num),
TCPHandlerClass, (arg1,arg2))

And have arg1, arg2 available via TCPHandlerClass.__init__ or some other
way.

Where TCPHandlerClass:

class TCPHandlerClass(SocketServer.StreamRequestHandler) :
def handle(self):
#handle stream events here#
Thanks for any advice.

I use the following method.
Would also like to know if there's another way to do this.

class SVNUpdateRequestHandler(SocketServer.BaseRequestHa ndler):
def __init__(self, svn, wms, *args, **kwargs):
self.svn = svn
self.wms = wms
# NEED to set additional attributes before parent init
SocketServer.BaseRequestHandler.__init__(self, *args,
**kwargs)

def handle(self):
pass

def get_handler(svn, wms):
class RequestHandler(SVNUpdateRequestHandler):
def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
SVNUpdateRequestHandler.__init__(self, svn, wms,
*args, **kwargs)

return RequestHandler

def main(port, requesthandler):
server = SVNUpdateServer(('', port), requesthandler)
while 1:
server.handle_request()

if __name__ == '__main__':
svn, wms = sys.argv[1:]

requesthandler = get_handler(svn, wms)
main(port, requesthandler)

In the handler class, self.server refers to the server object, so subclass
the server and override __init__ to take any additional server parameters
and store them as instance variables.

import SocketServer

class MyServer(SocketServer.ThreadingTCPServer):
def __init__(self, server_address, RequestHandlerClass,arg1,arg2):
SocketServer.ThreadingTCPServer.__init__(self,serv er_address,RequestHandlerClass)
self.arg1 = arg1
self.arg2 = arg2

class MyHandler(SocketServer.StreamRequestHandler):
def handle(self):
print self.server.arg1
print self.server.arg2

if __name__ == '__main__':
srv = MyServer(('',5000),MyHandler,123,456)
srv.serve_forever()

--Mark
