Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (May 30)

QOTW: "Making a user class work anywhere you can put a mapping in Perl is
deep magic, but easy in Python. Creating types that act like files and can be
used wherever a file is used is SOP in Python; I'm not even sure it's
possible in Perl (probably is, but it's again deep magic)." - Mike Meyer

"... I don't bother with classes unless I'm going to end up with multiple
instances (or I'm pushed into a corner ..." - Dan Sommers
Over TWO DOZEN Python-based projects have been accepted for
the 2006 Summer of Code:

Computing stuff is categorically hard because of the combinatorics
and scales which arise naturally. Grant Edwards details a true-life
example, which happened to be about numeric interpolation, of how
problems ("debugging" ) are dramatically superlinear:

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia

Notice especially the master FAQ

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
http://www.pythonware.com/daily
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
much of the universe of Pybloggers.

Steve Bethard, Tim Lesher, and Tony Meyer continue the marvelous
tradition early borne by Andrew Kuchling, Michael Hudson and Brett
Cannon of intelligently summarizing action on the python-dev mailing
list once every other week.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
Consortium as an independent nexus of activity. It has official
responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.

Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.
