Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Mar 7)

QOTW: "Really, of course, the only things you need to make explicit are the
ones that readers don't understand." -- Steve Holden

"Working with unicode objects in Python is so transparent, it's easy to
forget about what a C extension would likely want." -- Kevin Dangoor

"You take leadership in a small area, and you keep it as long as you
care to." -- Max M, on the slender rewards of open-source authorship
Even with everything else going on at PyCon2005--dynamite
speakers, thrilling Sprints, and so on--the most newsworthy
event of the week likely will be revelations about IronPython's
schedule. When will it be possible to create .NET services
in Python? Keep in mind that PythonNet already lets Python
applications be .NET clients:

Brett C. begins his farewell tour from python-dev summation:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...e13efba90ca590

Python has a Security Response Team, python-dev has new
summarizers, CPython might soon have a new "throwaway
list" optimization, and those only hint at the range of
progress python-dev has made in the last fortnight:

Skip Montanaro and Diez Roggisch write with precision on
use of urllib, and particularly its user-agent refinement:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...ada773d6f6227/

Python is a good extension language, in the sense that an
application or parts of it can be made scriptable under the
control of an end-user. It's easy to do so--but be careful
to promote "safe plugging":

Jeff Epler exhibits a definition which automates remote
control of Tkinter processes:

ChaosKCW offers timings and brief commentary on alternative
wrappings of SQL access with iterables and generators:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/...f516d7d9387dad

Python is flexible. You can create applications, you can work
interactively, you can interactively manage applications, you
can create applications that offer interaction under
programmatic control, you can ...:

One of the fundamentals of Python's origin was that the
language play well with others (an innovation, in that
context). Among the many instances of teamwork between
Python and other languages that turn up daily is Python's
success in development of assemblers:

It appears that the -W option on starting python doesn't work the same as the warnings module. In particular, the "message" parameter is not treated as a regular expression, but rather a string literal which must appear at the beginning of a warning message in order to match. The treatment of -W in "python -h" makes no mention of the warnings module (and I actually couldn't find any definitive documentation on command line switches),...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
