socket-like interface for tunneling through SOCKS - Python 2.x

This module provides a standard socket-like interface for Python for tunneling connections through SOCKS proxies. This is an updated version of SocksiPy. Many old bugs fixed, and overall code cleanup. It features: * Fully supports Python 2.6 - 3.4 * SocksiPyHandler, courtesy e000, was also added as an example of how this module can be used with urllib2. See example code in * Bugs in the original SocksiPy were fixed, including two that could lead to infinite hanging when communicating with bad proxy servers. * urllib3, which powers the requests module, is working on integrating SOCKS proxy support based on this branch. * SOCKS5, SOCKS4, and HTTP are now aliases for PROXY_TYPE_SOCKS5, PROXY_TYPE_SOCKS4, and PROXY_TYPE_HTTP * Various style and performance improvements; codebase simplified * Actively maintained
