I looked up "tute" in the dictionary. No such word, so I must assume the
answer is no. I am sure a nice Google search or even a search on the Python
web site would help you a lot.

My bad.

Sorry, I meant tutorial. I did Google for it but I was looking for a
recommended tutorial as I was just starting up Python.

Thanks anyway.

Sorry, I meant tutorial. I did Google for it but I was looking for a
recommended tutorial as I was just starting up Python.

Can't think of a tutorial exclusively for Py/W32 but if you're really
just starting (and on a W32 platform) I strongly recommend getting the
documentation in Windows Help Format (CHM) - this is a very useful
facility enabling searching and a slightly friendlier interface than
the online documentation (which is still great I hasten to add). I've
just gone looking for where to find that and I can't find it ! I can
find other doco downloads but not that, can anyone else tell us where
that is ?

Also if you have some money to spare I would strongly recommend the
O'Reilly book "Python Programming on Win32" by Mark Hammond and Andy
Robinson. It's a very useful book although I have to say that if
you're just starting you'll find lots to do before you need to start
worrying about the bits which are specific to Win32.

Make sure you have downloaded the Win32All package - look here
http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/ (and while you're at it take
a look at http://www.python.org/windows/ ) and then you'll have
PythonWin as well as IDLE to run/edit your code in, as well as lots of
other Win32 stuff which is useful.

It occurs to me that you might be thinking of leaping straight into
GUI programming using Python. If that's so you may have to discount
some of what I've said about not needing to worry about platform
differences. I've been using Python for just over a year but so far I
haven't got into doing the GUI side of things.

Finally somethign I only just found today myself,
http://www.rexx.com/~dkuhlman/python...ython_101.html - it's not
Win32 specific but I think you'll find it useful.

regards

richard shea.
