post request socket python 1

post request socket python

from socket import socket,error
headers = """GET http://www.google.com HTTP/1.1
                Host: www.google.com\r\n\r\n"""
try:
  s = socket()
  s.connect((host,int(port)))
  s.settimeout(4)
  s.send(headers.encode())
  s.recv(800)
  s.close()
except error:
  s.close()

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. It creates a socket object.
2. It connects to the host and port specified.
3. It sets a timeout of 4 seconds.
4. It sends the HTTP headers to the host.
5. It receives the response from the host.
6. It closes the socket.

The code is pretty straightforward. The only thing that might be confusing is the headers variable.

The headers variable contains the HTTP headers that we want to send to the host.

The headers are sent to the host using the send() method.

The response from the host is received using the recv() method.

The recv() method takes an argument that specifies the number of bytes to receive.

The number of bytes to receive is specified as 800.

The reason for this is that the response from the host will be in the form of an HTTP response.

An HTTP response consists of a status line, headers, and a body.

The status line and headers are separated from the body by two newline characters.

The status line and headers will be less than 800 bytes.

The body will be greater than 800 bytes.

The recv() method will return the status line, headers, and the first 800 bytes of the body.

The status line and headers are not needed.

The first 800 bytes of the body are not needed.

The only thing that is needed is the status line.

The status line will tell us if the host is up or down.

If the host is up, the status line will be something like HTTP/1.1 200 OK.

If the host is down, the status line will be something like HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found.

The status line will be the first line of the response.

The status line will be terminated by a newline character.

The newline character will be the 10th character in the response.

The status line will be the first 9 characters in the response.

The status line will be the first 9 characters in the response.

The status line will be the first 9 characters in the response.
