This is probably something simple. I'm having some trouble with this little bit of code below. I start it up once as a server, then a second time as the client connecting to localhost. However, it never actually seems to connect. Both sides just wait indefinitely. I'm a bit stuck as to how to debug this, so if someone has a solution for me and could tell me how I would have figured it out, that would be great!
Most likely the problem is sys.stdin.readline(). I suggest taking a look at twisted.internet.stdio as a way to eliminate your ConsoleInput class and the uses of the reactor-private method addReader().
If I were going to try to track down the cause of the hang, I'd probably start with strace to see where the processes are waiting.
