[Python-Dev] socket.error should be an IOError?
Sat, 18 Nov 2000 13:57:31 -0800 (PST)
In socketmodule, socket.error is currently just a plain old error
(derived only from Exception). Looks to me like it should be an IOError.
Do you agree?
line 2379 of socketmodule.c:
d = PyModule_GetDict(m);
PySocket_Error = PyErr_NewException("socket.error", NULL, NULL);
if (PySocket_Error == NULL)
...just change that first NULL to PyExc_IOError.
