Unix domain socket in python example?

P: n/a
Hi,

How are you?

I'm completly new in python but I know a little of C.

I developed a small application in python which generate and receive
some data from times in times (question of seconds) and I need to send
this data to a unix domain socket (/var/run/sfp) and read the
response and print on the screen.

I looked for a example of source code in python which connect to a
unix doman socket, send some data and print the response on the
screen, however I were unable to find it.

Can someone please point me to some resource in the internet that have
a code like that one in a fashion that I can adapt it? Or maybe post a
example code here in the forum..

Thank you,

Cheers

http://docs.python.org/lib/socket-example.html

It's trivial to change it from INET to UNIX domain.
Or maybe post a example code here in the forum..


# Echo server program
import socket,os

s = socket.socket(socket.AF_UNIX, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
try:
os.remove("/tmp/socketname")
except OSError:
pass
s.bind("/tmp/socketname")
s.listen(1)
conn, addr = s.accept()
while 1:
data = conn.recv(1024)
if not data: break
conn.send(data)
conn.close()
# Echo client program
import socket

s = socket.socket(socket.AF_UNIX, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect("/tmp/socketname")
s.send('Hello, world')
data = s.recv(1024)
s.close()
print 'Received', repr(data)
