CGI scripts

Jay
Can I use Python for CGI scripts. It is telling me to use Perl and I
don't know any

To be honest I don't really no what CGI scripts are (soz)

I have purchased a domain name of my ISP PIPEX and 100MB space

And I don't know what I can do with it now

Will your pages be served by your ISP, that is the domain name that
you purchased will point to a server hosted your ISP? If yes and your
ISP hosts some form of python on those servers and allows you to use
it then you can serve your pages using python (via CGI or some other
mechanism). The best thing to do first is to ask your ISP what
facilities it has. Perl, php, python, ruby or what.

If your purchased domain name will point to a server that you
administer yourself then you can do pretty much everything you wish
(almost :)). For example you can install mod_python if you are using
Apache and serve your pages using that.

I just realized that you also mentioned having a 100MB quota, so
probably your pages will be served by your ISP. Then the best thing is
to ask your ISP if it hosts python or not.

According to the Pipex web page, if you got their low-end hosting package
based on Linux, you get PHP4, PHP5, or Perl. No Python.

Perhaps you should have checked your requirements before you spent money on
a web host. There are many good, inexpensive web hosting companies that do
allow Python scripting.

Is there a simple way to get the path to the Python Tools/scripts directory? Currently I have defined by hand an environment variable such as PYTHONSCRIPTS=/home/myhome/packages/Python-2.3.3/Tools/scripts so I can alias the more useful scripts in my .bashrc (for instance alias dutree=$PYTHONSCRIPTS/dutree.py), but this approach is PITA, I have to change the variable each time I change machine and at each new Python version. Is there...

We currently send product releases to our customers, and often have to include scripts that need to be ran on the Oracle databases (also do it for SqlServer customers, but we use a different set of scripts for that). Some of the Sql scripts can be quite long, and so we break them out to their own script files and call them all from one main ..sql file, using sqlplus to execute it all. The admin would run the file like:

Hello! We have a set of individual .SQL scripts which we would like to execute against a MS SQL Server 2000.

Hello, I have two small PHP scripts running on a test page at: http://www.usernomics.com/ergonomic-products-accessories5.html Both scripts work perfectly when there is one script on a page. However, if I place two on the page (one above the other), the second script will not render. I get no PHP error messages - the script will just not render. I think the PHP Scripts are OK as they were automatically generated by RSS

We currently have all of our schema and testdata laid out in a large set of sql scripts. It currently takes about 15 minutes to run the scripts on a Dual 1.7ghz box with 1gb of ram. Does anyone know of a way to speed this up? Since our database is currently changing all the time, we are constantly having to re-create our database from these scripts.

Just noticed something rather annoying after upgrading my test box (a Linux server running DB2 UDB v8 for LUW) to fixpak 11 (for reference it was previously on fixpak 7). In the past I've relied heavily on the ability to start multiple long-running SQL scripts in the background and have them all run in parallel. Unfortunately, it seems that somewhere between fixpak 7 and fixpak 11 something has been fixed / broken which prevents more...

Suppose I have a directory `scripts`. I'd like the scripts to have access to a package that is not "installed", i.e., it is not on sys.path. On this list, various people have described a variety of tricks they use, but nobody has proposed a pretty way to allow this. I am therefore assuming there is not one. (?) How about allowing a `scripts.pth` file in such a `scripts` directory, to work like a path configuration file?

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,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
