Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Mar 17)

QOTW: "Generally, you should always go for whatever is clearest/most easily
read (not just in Python, but in all languages)." - Timothy Delaney

"You will find as your programming experience increases that the different
languages you learn are appropriate for different purposes, and have
different advantages and disadvantages. Python excels at expressing
algorithms in an unambiguous and easily-readable way." - Steve Holden
Is Python a viable extension language for Java? Ravi Teja
expertly outlines the possibilities:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....ad155bc138c8d2

"In order to facilitate small groups working on specific
Python-in-Education projects, we have launched an edupython
list on google groups." This is a hands-on complement to
the more "philosophi cal" edu-sig.
http://groups.google.com/group/edupython
mailto:ed****** *@googlegroups. com

One interesting use of Python--at least to software workers--is
to manage texts written in *other* languages. Fredrik Lundh
and Roman Yakovenko present good approaches for the C++ case:

Pascal and Python? Sure:

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

center of Pythonia

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
http://www.pythonware.com/daily
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
much of the universe of Pybloggers.

responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.

Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.

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...
