[IronPython] Telnet API

Seo has a select module that workes with IronPython, but there are
also other issues with telnetlib relating to how it's uses sys.stdin
which I do not have time to investigate at the moment.

But you could use the following open source assembly as the basis for
a telnet IP library.


The following is an IronPython version of the example they provide:

import clr
import De.Mud.Telnet as Telnet
import sys

done = False

def on_disconnect(sender, e):
    print "Disconnected"
    global done
    done = True
    print "Press <Enter> to quit"

def on_data_available(sender, e):
    print e.Data

tn = Telnet.TelnetWrapper()

tn.Disconnected += on_disconnect
tn.DataAvailable += on_data_available
tn.TerminalType = "xterm"
tn.Hostname = "unikorn.css.net"
tn.Port = 23



while not done:
    tn.Send(raw_input() + tn.CR)
