hi all,

I'm reading this book that says when creating a socket you have to use the
socket.socket() *function *as in :


but whey i check they type it says it's a class which makes sense cause
you're creating a socket object.

>>> type(ss)
<class 'socket.socket'>

so, which is it? or do authors loosely use these terms interchangeably in
this context?
