Re^7: Sharing sockets between the main script and thread
in thread Sharing sockets between the main script and thread
re complexity - no disagreement and I'm always looking for easier ways to do things. I really like the mechanism for sharing file handles via the file number and it does indeed work like a champ for me. The only challenge I had was to take the traditional socket model which tends to have worker threads doing the I/O and turn it on its head because I need a different model, at least I think I do.
