import socket, sys
import threading

s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
s.bind(('', 8080))

def send_msg():
while True:
msg = input('Please enter what you want to send:')
s.sendto(msg.encode('utf8'), ('', 9090))
if msg == 'exit':

def recv_msg():
while True:
# The data type of data is a tuple
# The 0th element in the tuple is the received data
# The first element in the tuple is the sender's ip address and port number
data, addr = s.recvfrom(1024)
print('Received a message from {}address{}port:{}'.format(addr[0], addr[1], data.decode('utf8')),
file=open('Message record.txt', 'a', encoding='utf8'))

t1 = threading.Thread(target=send_msg)
t2 = threading.Thread(target=recv_msg)
