I made a better chat client following help from people:
They told me that if I didn't want to be blocked on .recv when waiting for messages, I would need to use threads, classes, functions, and queues to do so.
So I followed some help a specific person gave me where I created a thread from a class and then defined a function that was supposed to read incoming messages and print them.
I also created a function that allows you to enter stuff to be sent off.
Thing is, when I run the program. Nothing happens.
Can somebody help point out what is wrong? (I've asked questions and researched for 3 days, without getting anywhere, so I did try)
from socket import *
print("Client Version 3")
HOST = input("Connect to: ")
PORT = int(input("On port: "))
# Create Socket
s = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM)
print("Connected to: ",HOST,)
#-------------------Need 2 threads for handling incoming and outgoing messages--
# 1: Create out_buffer:
Buffer = 
rlist,wlist,xlist = select.select([s],Buffer,)
# made a function a thread
for i in rlist:
data = i.recv(1024)
# Now for outgoing data.
user_input=("Your message: ")
if user_input is True:
Buffer += [user_input.encode()]
for i in wlist:
Buffer = 
Thanks for taking a look, thanks also to Tony The Lion for suggesting this
