I am coding a web spider for research purposes and have run into an error I am uncertain about. I am fairly new to web programming and need a bit of guidance. I use http.client to get a connection, request a site, get the response, and read the resonse into a variable. Then, using HTMLparser, I attempt to read() the variable, but am given this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\snorris4\Desktop\FLOSSmoleSpiderSavannah\src\SavannahSpider.py", line 45, in <module>
File "C:\Users\snorris4\Desktop\FLOSSmoleSpiderSavannah\src\SavannahSpider.py", line 41, in main
File "C:\Python31\lib\html\parser.py", line 107, in feed
self.rawdata = self.rawdata + data
TypeError: Can't convert 'bytes' object to str implicitly

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Duplicate threads waste people's time.
