Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)

A totally Revised version that includes New fabric on Coroutines, Debugging, trying out, Parsing, String Formatting, and extra

 

Python three is the simplest model of the language but: it truly is extra strong, handy, constant, and expressive than ever prior to. Now, best Python programmer Mark Summerfield demonstrates the way to write code that takes complete good thing about Python 3's positive factors and idioms. Programming in Python three, moment variation, brings jointly all of the wisdom you want to write any software, use any ordinary or third-party Python three library, and create new library modules of your own.

 

Summerfield attracts on his decades of Python event to percentage deep insights into Python three improvement you won't locate wherever else. He starts through illuminating Python's "beautiful heart": the 8 key components of Python you want to write strong, high-performance courses. construction on those center parts, he introduces new issues designed to reinforce your sensible expertise-one proposal and hands-on instance at a time. insurance comprises
* constructing in Python utilizing procedural, objectoriented, and useful programming paradigms
* growing customized programs and modules
* Writing and interpreting binary, textual content, and XML records, together with not obligatory compression, random entry, and textual content and XML parsing
* Leveraging complex information varieties, collections, keep watch over constructions, and features
* Spreading software workloads throughout a number of methods and threads
* Programming SQL databases and key--value DBM records
* Debugging techniques-and utilizing try pushed improvement to prevent insects within the first position

* complicated programming thoughts, together with turbines, functionality and sophistication decorators, context managers, descriptors, summary base sessions, metaclasses, coroutines, and extra

 

Programming in Python three, moment variation, serves as either instructional and language reference. It assumes a few past programming adventure, and is followed by way of broad downloadable instance code-all of it proven with Python three on home windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. This version covers Python three. zero and three. 1, and because of the Python language moratorium it's also legitimate for Python three. 2 which has an identical language as Python three. 1.

Example text

Most functions accept a fixed number—possibly zero—of arguments. Some accept a fixed number of required arguments plus some number of optional arguments. We will follow the convention used in the official Python documentation, which encloses optional arguments in square brackets. Some functions can even take an arbitrary number of arguments, which is shown by the use of an ellipsis. Python has a fairly small number of “built-in” functions. [, sep=seprstr][, end=endstr]) Prints the arguments, of which there may be any number, separating each by a seprstr (default ' ') and omitting certain technical details such as the quotes surrounding a string, and ending with an endstr (default '\n') Python 2: print is a statement, not a function.

Count('G')) Normally, the only kinds of expressions that have any effect when used as statements are function and method calls; docstrings are an exception. Docstrings are different from comments. Comments disappear when Python interprets code, but docstrings are retained. Consequently, docstrings have greater utility than comments. In particular, the help function looks at the docstring of a user-defined function together with its parameter list to generate a help description, as shown in Example 2-6.

All functions return a value, whether or not they contain a return statement: if the function finishes executing without encountering a return, it returns None. STATEMENT Function Return return exits the currently executing function, returning value to its caller. value may be omitted, in which case None is returned. return value 24 | Chapter 2: Names, Functions, and Modules Figure 2-3. Function calls If you call a function from the interpreter or an IDE while you are developing code and nothing is printed, that means your function returned None.
