Part of twisted.internet.protocol View Source View In Hierarchy
This is the abstract superclass of all protocols.
If you are going to write a new protocol for Twisted, start here. The docstrings of this class explain how you can get started. Any protocol implementation, either client or server, should be a subclass of me.
My API is quite simple. Implement dataReceived(data) to handle both
event-based and synchronous input; output can be sent through the
'transport' attribute, which is to be an instance that implements
twisted.protocols.basicmodule for a few of them.
|Method||makeConnection||Make a connection to a transport and a server.|
|Method||connectionMade||Called when a connection is made.|
Make a connection to a transport and a server.This sets the 'transport' attribute of this Protocol, and calls the connectionMade() callback.
Called when a connection is made.This may be considered the initializer of the protocol, because it is called when the connection is completed. For clients, this is called once the connection to the server has been established; for servers, this is called after an accept() call stops blocking and a socket has been received. If you need to send any greeting or initial message, do it here.
