Which one to use: generate_tokens or tokenize?

According to the Python documentation:

18.5 tokenize -- Tokenizer for Python source
....
The primary entry point is a generator:
generate_tokens (readline)
....
An older entry point is retained for backward compatibility:
tokenize(readli ne[, tokeneater])
====
Does this mean that one should preferably use generate_tokens ? If so,
what are the advantages?

Be adventurous: try them both. You'll figure it out quickly. If you
have to endure "an explanation" first, read PEP 255, where
tokenize.tokeni ze was used as an example motivating the desirability
of introducing generators.

Hi, I am looking for a stringtokenizer class/method in C#, but can't find one. The similar classes in Java and C++ are StringTokenizer and CStringT::tokenize respectively. I need to keep a current position within the string and change the delimiters dynamically when going throught the string. Does anyone know a stringtokenizer in c#? Thanks a lot,

Hi I would like to extend python so that you could create hiercical tree structures (XML, HTML etc) easier and that resulting code would be more readable. The syntax i would like is something like the below: # Example creating html tree '*!*' is an operator that creates an new node '*=*' is an operator that sets an attribute.

I ran into a problem with a script i was playing with to check code indents and need some direction. It seems to depend on if tabsize is set to 4 in editor and spaces and tabs indents are mixed on consecutive lines. Works fine when editors tabsize was 8 regardless if indents are mixed. Below are how the 3 test files are laid out, the sample code and output I get. Any help on how to detect this correctly would be appreciated.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
