Hi, BUPTGuo!

  1. 终端输出的可能不算是unicode。根据这里这里,称其为percent-encodingurl-encoding比较合适。

中文这两个字为例。根据这里: python3中的字符串是以Unicode编码的。如果知道字符的整数编码,还可以用十六进制这么写str:

>>> '\u4e2d\u6587' #this is unicode


>>> '中文'.encode('utf-8')

如果在server的根目录下建立一个叫做中文的目录,然后在浏览器中访问。通过观察Chrome的开发者工具,可以看到Request Header里面的url对应的中文是这样的



另一方面,利用Chrome的开发者工具,可以看到在Request Headers里面,不管是用GET还是POST,如果路径是中文,url那一段就会被percent-encoding。所以我觉得,这一步编码应该是浏览器做的,在服务端的终端只是把收到的GET或者POSTurl打印出来了。



path = re.match(r'.* /(.*)/ HTTP',self.requestline).group(1)


def log_request(self, code='-', size='-'):
    path1 = self.requestline
    m = re.match(r'.* /(.*)/ HTTP', path1)
    if m:
        path2 =
        path3 = urllib.parse.unquote(path2)
        path4 = path1.replace(path2, path3)
        self.requestline = path4
    self.log_message('"%s" %s %s',self.requestline, str(code), str(size))
def do_POST(self):
    for i in range(8):

2. 【ipv6支持】估计要牵涉到更底层吧,到BaseHTTPServer这一层才import了socket,相当于对SimpleHTTPServer隐藏了socket。从这里我们可以知道,如果要用ipv6,则需要s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET6, socket.SOCK_STREAM)

所以我们的目的就是要修改socket的参数,首先找到test()这个函数,然后找到它的参数ServerClass = http.server.HTTPServer,在python目录中找到http这个文件夹中的,搜索HTTPServer,得知它是继承了socketserver.TCPServer这个类,再去python目录下找到socketserver.py这个文件,在TCPServer这个类中可以看到address_family = socket.AF_INET(第415行),也就是默认用的ipv4。如果修改为AF_INET6(可能需要sudo)并保存,然后在浏览器地址栏输入http://[::1]:8000,就可以通过ipv6访问了([::1]是ipv6形式的localhost)。同时也注意到,ipv4仍然能够访问。(以上内容基于py3,但py2类似)


$ ping6 xxxx%eth0:8000
$ nc -zv -6 localhost 8000
$ nc -zv -6 ::1 8000


另外,根据你和bones7456同学的代码和思路,我写了基于python3.4的SimpleHTTPServerWithUpload,代码托管在 这里
然后整个修改过程写在了 这篇文章
