Python can also communicate via sockets.
Connecting to a serverEdit
This simple Python program will fetch a 4096 byte HTTP response from Google:
import socket, sys sock = socket.socket ( socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM ) sock.connect ( ( "google.com", 80 ) ) sock.send('GET / HTTP/1.1\r\n') sock.send('User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (wikibooks test)\r\n\r\n') print(sock.recv(4096))
Most Python developers will prefer to use a high-level interface over using sockets, such as Twisted and urllib2.
