Looking for code

P: n/a
Hello. I am new to Python and for the most part new to programming. The
best way to learn to write is to read, so I have been looking for a
website that has the code of programs written in Python. If anyone knows
of a good place to find something like this, I would be very grateful if
you could respond.
Thanks!

Almost all Python code is distributed as .py files, which is the actual
source, so you shouldn't have to look far to find it.

Start with the standard distribution: look under your /python/lib folder
(adjust path to your own situation) and check it out: more code than you're
likely to want to read right now. :-)

Also download just about *any* Python program, starting from links on
www.python.org, or searching at SourceForge.net, and you'll find lots
of source to peruse.

Also make sure you've followed through the tutorial and other beginner
materials, again linked from www.python.org.

Three to start with....

http://www.python.org/
// naturally!

http://www.onlamp.com/python/
O'Reillys' open source community portal thing, with a good python
section. Leads to many more good sites, not just Python. (Apparently
LAMP is an acronym LinuxApacheMySQLPerl, but they had to let Python join
the party!)

Hello Andy and welcome!

Have you looked at http://www.python.org/topics/learn/ ?
It contains a lot of links to interesting sites.

You might also just want to browse the Python projects
on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/softwaremap/t...p?form_cat=178

Useless Python ( http://www.uselesspython.com ) and the Vaults of
Parnassus ( http://py.vaults.ca/ ) are good places to check out.

Ahem, <shamless plug>my site ( http://andres980.tripod.com/sw/ ) has a
couple of programs I've done in Python.</shameless plug>

The obvious place to look for relatively simple snippets is
http://uselesspython.com. But Vaults of Parnassus is nice too.

Python Cookbook has lots of short, potentially useful, programs.
http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Cookbook/Python

There is also a print edition.

Also worth checking out is Martin C. Brown's Python Annotated Archives:
<http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0072121041/qid=1069252646/sr=1-12/ref=sr_1_12/002-1717347-1412057?v=glance&s=books>

Not everyone likes it, but it is guided tour through the complete source
code for a number of Python applications, many of them right out of the
standard library. If you like learning that way you may find it quite
helpful. I have.
