Hi All,

I have recenlty found a server code in a textbook and I noticed the following piece of code which closes a client socket in a certain condition:


I tested the server and I forced the server with the client in order to run into that part and it worked fine (the socked was closed and then the message printed). My question is if the socket is closed how does it still print the address and port of the already closed socket?

Those are parameters of the Socket object which don't change just because the underlying socket connection is no longer open.
