Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Nov 6)

QOTW: "- don't use SAX unless your document is huge
- don't use DOM unless someone is putting a gun to your head" - Istvan Albert

"I wouldn't fret too much about a sharp remark from Fredrik Lundh.
They're pretty much all that way. ;) It looks like you already did the
right thing - read past the insults, and gleaned the useful information
that he included in between. It takes a little training to get used to
him, but if you can look past the nasty bite, he's really a valuable
resource." - Steven Bethard
Alex Martelli and Bengt Richter rely on the galilean property
and set function to compute whether a list is duplicate-free:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....da706b9f9e622/

You needn't just pine for syntax from other languages missing
in Python, such as Perl's "start..end "; if you're Peter Otten,
you can add it to Python:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....412e06dfea965/

Python as podcast! You might have *thought* you knew about
the language, but it's a big Python world.
http://www.awaretek.com/python/index.html

Similarly, yes, Python can do what strtok() does in C, although
it's expressed more readably:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....1a1da4f5934dc/

Larry Bates demonstrates how simple use of ConfigParser can be:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....ec0512ed8c926/

With the new-style object model, type() is a stylish indirection:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....bfae9a69580a3/

Enthusiastic Alex accuses Van Roy and Hariri of having written
the 21st century SICP, and more. Much more. With references.
Yet he (and Magnus Lycka and others) remain faithful:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....2035ee4150c11/

Python's a great general-purpose language. It can address
storage devices directly:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....b92576280d3f0/
it can operate at high level, and 'most everything in between.

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia
http://www.python.org
Notice especially the master FAQ

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
http://www.pythonware.com/daily
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
much of the universe of Pybloggers.
