Python 2.1 - 2.4 differences

P: n/a
I found some e-book about Python 2.1, I want to print it but just to check
first if sintax of Python 2.1 is same as 2.4 ? Also does anybody know where
can I download any newer Python related e-book, because there isn't any
published yet in my country.

almost everything that works under 2.1 works under 2.4. the opposite
isn't always true, though. for more information on new stuff, see:

http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.3/whatsnew/
http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.4/whatsnew/
http://www.python.org/doc/2.4/whatsnew/whatsnew24.html

Pretty musch the same, but naturally, some things have changed. See
these documents for the major changes, by release:

* http://www.python.org/doc/2.3/whatsnew/
* http://www.python.org/doc/2.4/whatsnew/

I'm not sure whether it's worth learning python from a book on 2.1 because
of the changes that were made especially in 2.2 (see
http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.1/whatsnew/,
http://www.python.org/2.2.1/descrintro.html).

I don't know of a specific e-book on Python although there are several good
on-line tutorials. But if getting published books is difficult in your
country, then I would heartily recommend Safari Books Online
(http://www.safaribooksonline.com/). I have been using it for a few months
and I find it to be very useful.

Hi,

Dive Into Python is available both as a physical book and at
<http://diveintopython.org/>. It is reported to be a good intro for
those with programming experience. I don't and found it quite
readable, albeit after looking at some gentler books first.

A quick examination of my local copy has a revision date of
2004-05-20. (There may be a more recent version at the site.) I can't
seem to find an indication of Python version covered, but some of the
interactive prompts have at least the Python 2.3.2 version identifier.

HTH,

Brian vdB
