Oh that might be the problem, I m new to this and new to this kind of
conversations. What you said was correct. But what I am looking for is, if
one client reqst comes I need to process the data which I got from the
client, so I need to use the os module. But since my program executes on the
server os.sys.platform has the value "linux2". What I want is a module
having clients platform value for os.sys.platform. Any way to get that?
