Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jan 23)

QOTW: "XML with elementtree is what makes me never have [to] think about
XML again." -- Istvan Albert

"'Plays well with others' was a strong motivator for Python's design, and
that often means playing by others' rules." -- Tim Peters
Type mutability, and why some types are immutable. This has been
discussed before, and should be a FAQ topic (if it isn't already):
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...5c9cbb7e58db9b
http://www.python.org/tim_one/000195.html

Caching instances of classes for reuse:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...78beed046956d2

Storing data in a persistant fashion. One link discussing concurrency,
the other discussing data storage mechanisms. A link to PyTables as a
way of storing and indexing large amounts of data, and the announcement
for Dejavu 1.3, which also stores persistant data:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...2e6da39a4e8760
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...2849d3099abfdc
http://pytables.sourceforge.net/html/WelcomePage.html
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...a77dc70a55fc94

So, you want to use SFTP in Python? Paramiko is the answer (or so I read):
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...5e8482c023fe25
http://www.lag.net/paramiko/

Circular iteration, or any strange iteration tasks? Try itertools!
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...bd800632199d2a

What do PyChecker and Pylint have to do with each other?
Are they configurable? And do *you* know a half-dozen
distinct formats for printing a multi-line text?
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...633d4474e52e7/

Jeremy Bowers and Dan Stromberg know that some applications
should do the right thing, whether they happen to have a
bit-mapped user interface at run time or not:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...27f0e5fea2045/

The Bangalore Python Meetup first convened on 22 January 2005:
http://python.meetup.com/158/events/...ion=pastdetail

Why generator expressions sometimes don't beat list comprehensions, and
fitting Python to requirements. Let not the anti-functional fashion
obscure that filter() still sometimes makes for better coding than the
comparable list comprehension:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...55347dab27026d
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...5bab678ad9b2dc

Security is hard. Even the narrow aspect of cryptography is
hard, if only for the complication state politics makes of the
mathematics and engineering involved. Paul Rubin, Nick Craig-
Wood, and others present a few details:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...f8b0764d369cfa

No, really--Python does *that*, too. Although many people
regard hardware interfacing, and its associated bit-twiddling,
as outside Python's purview, they're ... wrong. See for
yourself how Python makes for *clearer* codings than C or
Java or Assembler or ...:
