Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Mar 19)

P: n/a
QOTW: "Well, to do what I've done so far in Java would have taken at least
5 and probably more like 10 times the code I've written. A simple yet
decent TCP chat server in about 30 lines of code is something I never
considered possible before looking at Python." -- Qp

"Python is built on a small set of entirely uninteresting control structures,
designed to lead you into a state of mind where you think more about the
logic of your code than about whether you can whip something off as a
one-liner or obfuscate it to show your brilliance in comparison to lesser
programmers. ;-)" -- Peter Hansen
