import httplib
conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("<A href="",80">",80)
conn.request("GET", "/index.php")
r1 = conn.getresponse()
print r1.status, r1.reason


where I test it,it show errors as below:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "E:\Program\demo\src\", line 6, in <module>
conn.request("GET", "/index.php")
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 862, in request
self._send_request(method, url, body, headers)
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 885, in _send_request
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 856, in endheaders
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 728, in _send_output
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 695, in send
File "C:\Python25\Lib\", line 663, in connect
socket.gaierror: (11001, 'getaddrinfo failed')

can any body help me ?

Two things.

1. Your line

("<A href="",80">",80)

is malformed because you have nested "" marks. Python always takes the first " to be the start of a string and the next " to be the end. (unless the first " is part of """). So if you need a complicated string, you need to do

('<A HREF="",80')

2. Actually, I think the syntax of HTTPConnection is a lot simpler. If I understand you right, I think you want this:

import httplib
conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("",80)
conn.request("GET", "/index.php")
r1 = conn.getresponse()
print r1.status, r1.reason

2.5. If you enclose your code in [ code = Python ] [ / code ] tags, without the spaces, your code will pretty print like mine did, and preserve the indentation that is necessary for Python code.

Hope it helps,
