I read about modules and packages in the tutorial. I think I understand
how to use packages and modules, even I know how to create a module (as
far I understand it's a simple .py) file , but I don't know how can I
create a package and when should I do it.

Where should I look for more information?

I read about modules and packages in the tutorial. I think I understand
how to use packages and modules, even I know how to create a module (as
far I understand it's a simple .py) file , but I don't know how can I
create a package and when should I do it. The standard library contains some packages : email, xml, distutils ...
Read the __init__.py in the directory "package-name".
Where should I look for more information?


example of use :
import distutils
help(distutils. sysconfig)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'sysconfig'
import distutils.sysco nfig
help(distutils. sysconfig)
distutils.sysco nfig.get_python _lib(standard_l ib=True)
distutils.sysco nfig.get_python _lib(standard_l ib=False)

Hi all, We've been having a discussion over on the wxPython-users mailing list about how to deal with multiple versions of wxPython. During the discussion it came up that this isn't a problem faced only by wxPython, but would have to be dealt with by virtually all packages. The root of the problem is what to do when you install a new version of wxPython, and want to be able to keep using the old one. This question comes up frequently...

Python 2.4's -m command line switch only works for modules directly on sys.path. Trying to use it with modules inside packages will fail with a "Module not found" error. This PEP aims to fix that for Python 2.5. Previously, posting of a draft version of the PEP to python-dev and python-list didn't actually generate any responses. I'm not sure if that's an indication that people don't see the restriction to top-level modules as a problem...

When calling str() on a sequence or dict object, the elements of the sequence/dict will be represented as if their __repr__ method was called. Why is this? Wouldn't it be more consistent when calling str() on sequence to use the __str__ method of the elements in the sequence? As it is now, I often find myself typing something like: print map(str, alist) instead of just

Debian packages of 7.4 have been uploaded to Debian's experimental archive. Because of certain issues with interlocking dependencies, I will not move them to unstable until version 7.3.4-9 is accepted into the testing distribution. This is not a reflection on 7.4's quality but the result of a long-standing blockage in the movement of packages into testing caused by the perl packages. Unfortunately, this means that 7.4 packages won't get...

We just installed DB2 ESE V8 FP12 on our Windows 2003 servers. We also installed the DB2 ADMCL V8 FP12 on our websphere servers. We use the JDBC Type 4 drivers on our websphere servers to directly hit our DB2 Z/OS V7 databases. When we originally set up this environment (DB2 V8 FP8) we had to bind the JDBC type 4 drivers using the syntax: java com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Binder -url jdbc:db2://(ip address):(port number)/(system name) -user...

Hi folks, Running Python 2.5 on both a Windows XP laptop, and an Ubuntu Linux 7.04 desktop. I've gotten tired of maintaining multiple copies of my personal modules that I use over and over. I have copies of these files in the same directory as the main program I happen to be working on at the time. I've also downloaded FANN, and want to use its Python bindings. FANN does not seem to build automatically, like wxWidgets

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

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

The idea...
