array/list of sockets in python

+5 votes

I am currently trying to make and use a list/array of sockets in a program. So I have declared an array as follows:

myCSocks = ['CSock1', 'CSock2', 'CSock3', 'CSock4', 'CSock5']

and I am trying to use my array elements as follows:

myCSocks[i], addr = serverSocket.accept()
message = myCSocks[i].recv(1024)

I am getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "./", line 22, in 
 message = myCSocks[i].recv(1024)
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'recv'

This kind of makes sense to me, it is saying that my array elements are of type String and are not sockets. So I understand what my problem is but I do not know how to remedy it. I have googled "list of sockets python" but did not find anything. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This is a list of Python strings, not an array, not sockets.

You actually have added strings to your list. this 'is_a_string. You need to add the objcts to the list. E.g.:

myCSocks = [CSock1, CSock2, CSock3, CSock4, CSock5]

Hope this helps.

I have a numpy array consisting of 1s and zeros for representing binary numbers:


 >>> binary
 array([ 1., 0., 1., 0.])

I wish the array to be in the form 1010, so it can be manipulated. I do not want to use built in binary converters as I am trying to build my own.

Can python sockets be used to capture IP traffic when the traffic is originating from a non-python source?

Using a Lantronix UDS-1100 serial to IP converter. The goal is to write a small proof of concept piece in Python to capture serial data output by this device over IP.

I've done a couple test projects using sockets in python, but they were all done between python processes (python > python): listen() on one end, and connect(), sendall() etc on the other.

I think I can use sockets for this project, but before I invest a bunch of time into it, wanted to make sure it is a viable solution.

Can python sockets be used to capture IP traffic when the traffic is originating from a non-python source? I have full control over the IP and port that the device sends the serial data to, but there will be no python connect() initiated by the client. I can pre-pend then serial data with some connect() string if needed.

If sockets won't work, please recommend another solution...guessing it will be REST or similar.
