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

  1. QOTW: "Alas, Python has extensive libraries and [is] well documented
    to boot." - Edmond Dantes

    "Locking files is a complex business." - Sybren Stuvel


    File-locking *sounds* like an easy thing; it just isn't
    so in any operating system that often appears on desktops.
    Take advantage of those, like Jim Segrave, who have
    traveled this path before:

    Regular expressions do so much; in Perl, they can even
    initiate arbitrary side effects. Python achieves the
    same through evaluated substitution, or pyparsing, or
    ... or even directly, with the SE module:

    effbot explains exemaker. Yes, it *is* easy to supply
    a runnable Python or Python-based application on a
    memory stick:

    John Machin illustrates the rudiments of embedding:

    Closures let Peter Otten streamline an example test
    automation:

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

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    http://www.python.org
    Notice especially the master FAQ
    http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

    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.
    http://lowlife.jp/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/PythonProgrammersWeblog
    http://www.planetpython.org/
    http://mechanicalcat.net/pyblagg.html

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
    sure to scan this newsgroup weekly.
    http://groups.google.com/groups?oi=djq&as_ugroup=comp.lang.python.announce

    Python411 indexes "podcasts ... to help people learn Python ..."
    Updates appear more-than-weekly:
    http://www.awaretek.com/python/index.html

    Steve Bethard, Tim Lesher, and Tony Meyer continue the marvelous
    tradition early borne by Andrew Kuchling, Michael Hudson and Brett
    Cannon of intelligently summarizing action on the python-dev mailing
    list once every other week.
    http://www.python.org/dev/summary/

    The Python Package Index catalogues packages.
    http://www.python.org/pypi/

    The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
    to all sorts of Python resources.
    http://www.vex.net/~x/parnassus/

    Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
    mailing lists

    Python Success Stories--from air-traffic control to on-line
    match-making--can inspire you or decision-makers to whom you're
    subject with a vision of what the language makes practical.

    The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
    Consortium as an independent nexus of activity. It has official
    responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.
    http://www.python.org/psf/
    Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.

    hyperlinks retains a few gems.

    The online Python Journal is posted at pythonjournal.cognizor.com.
    and
    welcome submission of material that helps people's understanding
    of Python use, and offer Web presentation of your work.

    del.icio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
    It already aggregates quite a bit of Python intelligence.

    There is *not* an RSS for "Python-URL!"--at least not yet. Arguments
    for and against are occasionally entertained.


    Suggestions/corrections for next week's posting are always welcome.
