Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jan 23)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Josiah Carlson, Jan 23, 2005.

  1. QOTW: "XML with elementtree is what makes me never have [to] think about
    XML again." -- Istvan Albert

    "'Plays well with others' was a strong motivator for Python's design, and
    that often means playing by others' rules." -- Tim Peters


    Type mutability, and why some types are immutable. This has been
    discussed before, and should be a FAQ topic (if it isn't already):
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/f05c9cbb7e58db9b
    http://www.python.org/tim_one/000195.html

    Caching instances of classes for reuse:
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/9178beed046956d2

    Storing data in a persistant fashion. One link discussing concurrency,
    the other discussing data storage mechanisms. A link to PyTables as a
    way of storing and indexing large amounts of data, and the announcement
    for Dejavu 1.3, which also stores persistant data:

    So, you want to use SFTP in Python? Paramiko is the answer (or so I read):
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/e95e8482c023fe25
    http://www.lag.net/paramiko/

    Circular iteration, or any strange iteration tasks? Try itertools!
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/42bd800632199d2a

    What do PyChecker and Pylint have to do with each other?
    Are they configurable? And do *you* know a half-dozen
    distinct formats for printing a multi-line text?
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/2ff633d4474e52e7/

    Jeremy Bowers and Dan Stromberg know that some applications
    should do the right thing, whether they happen to have a
    bit-mapped user interface at run time or not:

    The Bangalore Python Meetup first convened on 22 January 2005:

    Why generator expressions sometimes don't beat list comprehensions, and
    fitting Python to requirements. Let not the anti-functional fashion
    obscure that filter() still sometimes makes for better coding than the
    comparable list comprehension:

    Security is hard. Even the narrow aspect of cryptography is
    hard, if only for the complication state politics makes of the
    mathematics and engineering involved. Paul Rubin, Nick Craig-
    Wood, and others present a few details:
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/fcf8b0764d369cfa

    No, really--Python does *that*, too. Although many people
    regard hardware interfacing, and its associated bit-twiddling,
    as outside Python's purview, they're ... wrong. See for
    yourself how Python makes for *clearer* codings than C or
    Java or Assembler or ...:

    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.
