    What if the next step beyond Python isn't functional languages,
    but ... Python!?

    List comprehensions and generators are now old enough to have
    their own offspring. PEP 289 explains how expressive, if oc-
    casionally "heavy", their intelligent mating can be.

    PythonDoc's important. You particularly need to know, "What's new
    in 2.0" (look for the section under that title).
    http://effbot.org/zone/pythondoc.htm

    Joe Marshall reports aspects from exceedingly interesting
    experiments in bouncing between Python, Matlab, .NET (!), Scheme,
    Common Lisp, C++.

    The Cookbook's active ferment continues to bubble up novel treats.
    Alex Martelli provides curried functions that beat the corresponding
    closures in performance.
    http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Cookbook/Python/Recipe/229472

    Francis Avila shows how to think about an advanced regular
    expression problem (but note the typo a follow-up corrects).
    http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=

    The Twisted distribution is packed full of treasures. Peter
    Hansen mentions the example of LivePage, which unites Flash on one
    end with Python on the other, through links of at least a dozen
    different dramatically-buzzworded technologies.
    http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=

    Enthusiast Andy Sy explains why Python trounces C++ and Java
    for GL-oriented high-performance cross-platform development.
    Note his comments about GTK+ vs. Qt.
    http://lists.free.net.ph/pipermail/compsci/2003-October/001510.html

    Command-line MacOS X work introduces a few magic words even for
    those familiar with the Unix of its ancestors. Russell E. Owen
    shows how these apply to PYTHONPATH assignment.

    One handy way to print content under Windows is to bring it up
    in an instance of Internet Explorer (for example), and let IE
    take responsibility for talking to the printer.

    Can Python calculate network addresses and related quantities? Sure.

    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.

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
    sure to scan this newly-revitalized newsgroup at least weekly.
