So i've been working on this code that i got online and it is a chat server code.
This is the code-
# import needed modules: from socket import * # get sockets, for well, sockets import string # string functions import time # for sleep(1) function # define global variables HOST = '' # Symbolic name meaning the local host PORT = 4000 # Arbitrary non-privileged server endl = "\r\n" # standard terminal line ending userlist =  # list of connected users done = 0 # set to 1 to shut this down kAskName = 0 # some constants used to flag kWaitName = 1 # the state of each user kOK = 2 # class to store info about connected users class User: def __init__(self): self.name = "" self.addr = "" self.conn = None self.step = kAskName def Idle(self): if self.step == kAskName: self.AskName() def AskName(self): self.conn.send("Name? ") self.step = kWaitName def HandleMsg(self, msg): print "Handling message: ",msg global userlist # if waiting for name, record it if self.step == kWaitName: # try to trap garb initiall sent by some telnets: if len(msg) < 2 or msg=="#": return print "Setting name to: ",msg self.name = msg self.step = kOK self.conn.send("Hello, "+self.name+endl) broadcast(self.name+" has connected."+endl) return # check for commands if msg == "quit": broadcast(self.name+" has quit.\n") self.conn.close() userlist.remove(self) return # otherwise, broadcast msg broadcast( self.name+": "+msg+endl ) # routine to check for incoming connections def pollNewConn(): try: conn, addr = s.accept() except: return None print "Connection from", addr conn.setblocking(0) user = User(); user.conn = conn user.addr = addr return user # routine to broadcast a message to all connected users def broadcast(msg): for u in userlist: u.conn.send(msg) # MAIN PROGRAM # set up the server s = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM) s.bind(HOST, PORT) s.setblocking(0) s.listen(1) print "Waiting for connection(s)..." # loop until done, handling connections and incoming messages while not done: time.sleep(1) # sleep to reduce processor usage u = pollNewConn() # check for incoming connections if u: userlist.append(u) print len(userlist),"connection(s)" for u in userlist: # check all connected users u.Idle() try: data = u.conn.recv(1024) data = filter(lambda x: x>=' ' and x<='z', data) data = string.strip(data) if data: print "From",u.name,': ['+data+']' u.HandleMsg(data) if data == "shutdown": done=1 except: pass for u in userlist: u.conn.close()
Now my problem is that when i try to connect, there is a traceback error
(Traceback (most recent call last):
File "E:\Python Files\Chat Server.py", line 98, in <module>
File "<string>", line 1, in bind
TypeError: bind() takes exactly one argument (2 given))
I've tried to switch the code around to make it work, but nothing seems to be working. Could use some help?
