socket_pexpect - use pexpect with a socket¶
This is like
pexpect, but it will work with any socket that you
pass it. You are responsible for opening and closing the socket.

SocketSpawn(socket: socket.socket, args=None, timeout=30, maxread=2000, searchwindowsize=None, logfile=None, encoding=None, codec_errors='strict', use_poll=False)[source]¶
This is like
pexpect.fdpexpectbut uses the cross-platform python socket api, rather than the unix-specific file descriptor api. Thus, it works with remote connections on both unix and windows.
__init__(socket: socket.socket, args=None, timeout=30, maxread=2000, searchwindowsize=None, logfile=None, encoding=None, codec_errors='strict', use_poll=False)[source]¶
This takes an open socket.
Close the socket.
Calling this method a second time does nothing, but if the file descriptor was closed elsewhere,
OSErrorwill be raised.
