Timeout mode internally sets the socket in non-blocking mode. The blocking and timeout modes are shared between file descriptors and socket objects that refer to the same network endpoint. A consequence of this is that file objects returned by the makefile() method should only be used when the socket is in blocking mode; in timeout or non-blocking mode file operations that cannot be completed immediately will fail.
Was hat das für Konsequenzen für mich? Kann ich Daten auch anders empfangen? Oder was wäre empfehlenswert?
