Okay, so yet another post here due to my utter confusion with this language...in all honesty, this isn't a question about threading, per say, lemme just demonstrate what I mean.
class RevoiceThread( threading.Thread ): def run (self): print "Remember to replace this line with the actual code"
is the code for a thread I want to run, the print line I wish to replace with this(well, I want to replace it with something more complex, but this would be a proof of concept)
time.sleep(10) self.connection.mode(channel + " +v", vname)
That would be wrong, however, because the variables in there (as well as the whole "mode" function, so the self.connection is wrong too...) are in a separate class (see the full code below). Is there a simple way to implement what I'm trying to do here, or should I try re-thinking how to do this? (I'd honestly prefer to avoid threading, but there isn't really any other way to do this I can think of)
