Linux Mag's "Introducti on to Python Decorators"


I've been trying to wrap my head around decorators and in my trails found avery recent article on Linux Mag's website. I didn't see a post here regarding this article and feel it is worth directing interested parties towards:

Introduction to Python Decorators

Have a web app that occasionally hangs? Use signals to
add a timeout to function requests with Python decorators.

Matthew Wilson
Thursday, March 13th, 2008


The link req. registration (sorry, I can't do anything about that).

In a brief summary: The author has a Linux-hosted Web service that occasionally hangs. He uses signals via decorators to overcome the problem in an elegant way. While some of the content may not be applicable to all readers needs for decorators, his illustration and description of the subject is very good (IMO, FWIW).

I hope this helps others as much as it has for me,

Hi, I did some googling, and found that there doesn't seem to be a pure python MySQL communication module. There is one for perl however, Net::MySQL. I was wondering if there was a specific reason why something similar hasn't been implemented in Python, a limitation of the language or libraries perhaps? I briefly scanned through the perl source for Net::MySQL, and there doesn't seem to be anything that couldn't be done in Python, but...

Hi, I've been trying to embed (statically) wxPy alongside an embedded py interpreter on a linux/gtk box. At one point, for some reason misc.o linking reported "multiple definitions of wxGetFreeMemory()". Since wxGetFreeMemory() seemed effectively unused in gtk, I just commented it out in misc_wrap.cpp (didn't want to patch SWIG to regenerate the wrapper code, so hacked the generated cpp source), and replaced...

The term "mock filesystem" refers to code allowing unit or acceptance tests to create, read and write, and manipulate in other ways "virtual" files, without any actual disk access. Everything is held in memory and therefore fast, without risk of damaging real files, and with none of the messiness of leftover files after testing. Googling the archives and the web suggests that only I and Remy Blank have done much along these lines. I...

Hi, I'm looking for a construct that's similar to (Turbo) Pascal's "with" statement. I read about the Python's new "with" statement, but I was dissapointed to learn that it does something different (I still don't see how it's better than try..except..finally, but that's not my question). Is there something similar to what I want that's Pythonic enough? (If you're not familiar with Pascal, here's how it works:

Python is a good programming language, but "Python" is not a good name. First, python also means snake, Monty Python. If we search "python" in google, emule, many results are not programming resource. If we search PHP, all results are programming resource. Second, python also means snake, snake is not a good thing in western culture. Many people dislike any things relevant to snake. We must have high regard for the custom.
