python question!!


new to python, and can't seem to find an answer to this via google.. of
course i'm not even sure what to callit.. so i might be searching in the
wrong places...

a python script foo.py, can have an import..

import dog
import cat

where dog, and cat, might have other "import" statements, and so on..

is there a function/feature/etc.. that i can run on "foo.py" that would walk
through the entire list of files that make up foo.py, so i could see the
list of *.py files that are required to run "foo.py".

this kind of list could then be used to compare my local version of files,
with the files that my group are changing, so i can tell which (if any)
files have been changed for the foo.py app...

There's this:

It generates a nice chart showing the 'tree' of imports for your
program. I found it valuable for helping me resolve a circular import

Generally speaking, if one had a list (from regular Python) and an array (from Numerical Python) that contained the same number of elements, would a While loop or a For loop process them at the same speed? Or, would the array process faster? I'm new to Python, so my question may expose my ignorance. I appreciate anyone's effort to help me understand. Thanks. It is much appreciated.

Hi I'm trying to teach myself python and so far to good, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting a function to work the way I think it should work. Right now I'm taking a simple program I wrote in Fortran and trying to do it in Python. I got it to work, but now I'm trying to modularize it. My fortran program uses a subroutine and I was trying to do the same thing in Python. But I'm still new so I'm having trouble understanding what I'm...

For unfortunate reasons, I'm considering switching back to Win XP (from OS X) as my "main" system. Windows has so many annoyances that I can only compare it to driving in the Bay Area at rush hour (OS X is like driving in Portland at rush hour--not as bad, but getting there), but there are really only a couple of things that are really, absolutely preventing me from making the switch. Number one is the lack of a decent command line and...

I've posted this question to comp.graphics.apps.gnuplot too but given that this python group may also comprise a lot of gnuplot users, and is far more active, I've posted this question here too.

Anyone had any success getting stdout from gnuplot on an ms windows system (XP)? I'm trying to read mouse coordinates...

Hi, I have been working in getting Boost.Python running on my PC, seems to work now. I have what I believe is somewhat of basic question here. I am starting on an application that will developed in VS2005, probably using C++/CLI. I want to be able to exchange data in between Python and C++. The user when running the C++ app will be able to call a python script, set some values, that will then be communicated to running application, it

Hi folks, new to Boost Python and struggling to build a prototype at work. I thought I'd start with a conceptual question to help clarify my understanding. I already have a basic prototype working nicely but I'm having a few issues, which I may post about later. A brief functional rundown of what I'm trying to prototype. Hopefully my explanation doesn't get too confusing! I'm embedding a python module into an application; Python will...

Dear all, I've successfully embedded the Python interpreter into a set of C/C++ application programs that use a larger library project with information from http://docs.python.org/api/api.html and http://docs.python.org/ext/ext.html.

I can't seem to figure this out. I just installed Python 2.5.2 a few days ago on my OS X 10.4.11 system. It runs fine and if I type "Python -V" in the Terminal it outputs "Python 2.5.2" which is correct. However, if I try to run a 'do shell script' in AppleScript which I'm wanting to run a Python program, it reverts to using Python 2.3. For example, if I run this code in AppleScript: -------------------- set p to "#!/usr/bin/python...

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,...
