Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Apr 5)

P: n/a
QOTW: "What is so nice about Python is that there are so many places
on the user/scripter/programmer/computer-scientist spectrum where you
can be and find Python to be a useful tool. This makes it very easy to
build good collaborations between domain experts and 'real programmers'
where both sides can use the same language and neither feels constrained
or overwhelmed." - Roy Smith

"In this setting I'd say that Java is a win, though I wouldn't recom-
mend it in a setting where most people actually knew what they were
doing." - Stefan Axelsson
"The next version of Python will have a 'statistics' module"

Armin Rigo launches a thread on performance dense with strong
emotions and confusions, but also deep questions about engineering

to one of timbot's rewrites has a head start

The single most remarkable fact about Python GUI toolkits is
how many different ones truly give good value. Even such apparent
also-rans as pyXPCOM and PyGTK boast persuasive testimonials

How does one enumerate a lattice? Thomas Heller, simon place,
Josiah Carlson, and Stephen Horne demonstrate that even simple
problems have better and worse solutions--particularly when
list comprehensions and generators are available
