Recommended "from __future__ import" options for Python 2.5.2?

Is there any consensus on what "from __future__ import" options
developers should be using in their Python 2.5.2 applications?

Is there a consolidated list of "from __future__ import" options to
choose from?

Thank you,
Malcolm

Just look inside the __future__ module.

* nested_scopes
* generators

Already mandatory features. You don't need to import them.

* with_statement

Import this one if you're using the feature. And for forward
compatibility, don't use "with" as a variable name.

* absolute_import

I haven't followed this one.

* division

ALWAYS import this in new modules. Otherwise, you'll be very likely
to get burned my code as simple as

def mean(seq):
return sum(seq) / len(seq)

What is the recommended way of generating HTML from Python? I know of HTMLGen and of few recipes in the Cookbook, but is there something which is more or less standard? Also, are there plans to include a module for HTML generation in the standard library? I really would like to see some standardization in this area. Michele Simionato

Dear Black Knight, I have no quarrel with you sir Knight, but I must import your parents. SHORT VERSION: I tried three variants of "from ../brave.py import sir_robin", one works. I want to use it in a py-file to execute command-line-style and that does not work.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. 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.
