Python in a Nutshell (2nd Edition)

Python in a Nutshell offers a fantastic, no-nonsense fast connection with details that programmers depend upon the main. This publication will instantly earn its position in any Python programmer's library.

This e-book bargains Python programmers one position to seem once they need assistance remembering or interpreting the syntax of this open resource language and its many robust yet scantily documented modules. This complete reference advisor makes it effortless to appear up the main often wanted information--not near to the Python language itself, but additionally the main often used components of the traditional library and an important third-party extensions.

Ask any Python aficionado and you'll listen that Python programmers have all of it: a sublime object-oriented language with readable and maintainable syntax, that enables for simple integration with parts in C, C++, Java, or C#, and a massive choice of precoded usual library and third-party extension modules. additionally, Python is straightforward to benefit, but robust adequate to tackle the main formidable programming demanding situations. yet what Python programmers used to lack is a concise and transparent reference source, with the right degree of steerage in how top to take advantage of Python's nice energy. Python in a Nutshell fills this need.

Python in a Nutshell, moment variation covers greater than the language itself; it additionally offers with the main often used components of the normal library, and the preferred and critical 3rd social gathering extensions. Revised and extended for Python 2. five, this booklet now comprises the gory info of Python's new subprocess module and breaking information approximately Microsoft's new IronPython undertaking. Our "Nutshell" structure suits Python completely by way of offering the highlights of crucial modules and services in its usual library, which disguise over ninety% of your sensible programming wishes. This e-book includes:

* A fast moving instructional at the syntax of the Python language
* an evidence of object-oriented programming in Python
* insurance of iterators, turbines, exceptions, modules, programs, strings, and normal expressions
* a brief reference for Python's integrated forms and capabilities and key modules
* Reference fabric on vital third-party extensions, equivalent to Numeric and Tkinter
* information regarding extending and embedding Python

Python in a Nutshell presents an excellent, no-nonsense speedy connection with info that programmers depend on the main. This booklet will instantly earn its position in any Python programmer's library.

Sample text

Many computer languages, including Fortran, C, C++, Java, and Python version 2, interpret a division operation a/b as integer division if both operands a and b are integers. If either a or b is a real (floating-point) number, a/b implies the standard mathematical float division. Other languages, such as MATLAB and Python version 3, interprets a/b as float division even if both operands are integers, or complex division if one of the operands is a complex number. The problem with our program is the coding of the formula (9/5)*C + 32.

Printf syntax. The output of the type shown above is accomplished by a print statement combined with some technique for formatting the numbers. The oldest and most widely used such technique is known as printf formatting (originating from the function printf in the C programming language).
