Python and Code Completion

I noticed that ide's such as activestates visual python have a certain
amount of code completion options, and i would love to implement something
similiar in my own ide.
eg when u type aclass().[dropdown with all methods here]
also Idle has some of these functions,as well as displaying 'hints' eg when
u type range([show hint here] (but idle sourcecode is to big for me try and
figure out how it is done..)

Can anybody please give me some pointers on how to get the available
properties/documentation to a class etc without actually excecuting the
code. Do i have to write my own semi-parser?
I know help('class') displays doc and methods and automatically imports
class, so is there maybe something similar to use?

any ideas?

check out the compiler module. Also, i think pydoc uses it.

Hi, Could you give your opinions on the best code completion in Python IDEs. My only complaint with PythonWin has been that the code completion support is incomplete. The interactive mode has better behavior than the editor. Tried to fix it but could not. Boa is not too different. At least when I last checked (a few months ago) Komodo and Visual Python were not very different either. Wing IDE seems converse. The editor auto list members...

Sorry but there is no another way, c# .net and mono are going to rip python, not because python is a bad lenguage, but because is to darn old and it refuses to innovate things, to fix wrong things, just because retarded backwards compatibility and because the python comunity and developers refuses to consider tools as being almost as important as the language itself. What does c# .net has that python doesnt ? (significant features) --...

IDLE is no longer satisfactory for me. Other IDEs make me very confused. Really do not know which one to use. I use WinXP sp2 for current development. So far as I know, Eclipse + PyDev + PyDev Extension is perfect for source code editing. Since I am really not sure how to use the debugger module, I really do not know how to add watch to variables etc. Anyone knows if this platform is a good one?

Hi, I would like an IDE that shows me all methods and functions I can call on a particular data item. For instance, iter() can be called on any sequence, but it is not a method. Nonetheless, I would like for something to show me every thing that I can call on a particular data item. This includes % after a string.

Hello, I was trying to get answers for these. SPE homepage was down. Then I found it on berlios (http://developer.berlios.de/forum/forum.php?forum_id=12695) but no one answered since 5 days. In fact nobody seems to write in anything to that forum, I presume it is dead. I have no other choice than ask it here. I apologize in advance, they may be silly questions. 1.

I don't want to be so mean here, but how hard it could be be writing a freesoftware which would automatically/intelligently auto complete Python code? (I mean something that really does the job, like Microsoft's Visual Studio or Sun's NetBeans or something else, you name it, but just don't give me PyDev please...) This could be an extension, a plugin, an Emacs mode, a new editor or even a brand new huge all-fancy IDE, I don't care, but...

Hi, I'm a FoxPro programmer, but I want to learn python before it's too late. I do a lot of statistical programming, so I import SPSS into python. In my opinion, the best features of Visual FoxPro 9.0 were: a) Intellisense (tells you what classes/methods are available and what variables go into a function) b) Code Completion (guesses your code after four letters) c) Data-Orientation; multiple data sessions can be open, data can be...

Hello, I've installed Eclipse, Python 2.5 and wxPython on Ubuntu 8.04. The problem is that I can't get code completion for wx module. I don't know if it occurs the same with other libraries outside the python "core". If I compile/run my code containing the wx library, I get an application running correctly, so it looks that definition works fine. Obviously, the obstacle is that I don't know (I don't want to either)

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
