Quoth Brian Lee <senux at senux.com>:
| I linked standard input/output to a socket by these lines.
| sys.stdin = conn.makefile('rb', -1)
| sys.stdout = conn.makefile('wb', 0)
| sys.stderr = sys.stdout
| print 'hello world'
| And it works: When I connect to my test server, I got 'hello
| world' string immediately.
| But when I use follow line, 'hello world (test.py') string does
| not printed through socket, but it printed on terminal which I
| start my test server.
| os.execv('test.py', ('', ''))
| #!/usr/bin/env python
| # test.py
| print 'hello world (test.py)'
| How can I fully link standard input/output to socket even in
| os.exec*() functions? Any advice?
I gather you have some kind of UNIX platform. In this case, you
can use os.dup2, with the socket as a file descriptor. That's
the same thing but at a much lower level - dup2 is an ioctl -
where you're working with the things that processes inherit.
I think your example in these terms would be something like
fd = conn.fileno()
print 'Hello, world'
