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

A totally Revised version that includes New fabric on Coroutines, Debugging, checking 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 earlier than. Now, best Python programmer Mark Summerfield demonstrates tips to write code that takes complete good thing about Python 3's beneficial properties and idioms. Programming in Python three, moment version, brings jointly the entire wisdom you want to write any application, use any general or third-party Python three library, and create new library modules of your own.

 

Summerfield attracts on his decades of Python adventure to proportion deep insights into Python three improvement you won't locate at any place else. He starts by means of illuminating Python's "beautiful heart": the 8 key parts of Python you want to write strong, high-performance courses. development on those center parts, he introduces new themes designed to reinforce your sensible expertise-one thought and hands-on instance at a time. assurance comprises
* constructing in Python utilizing procedural, objectoriented, and practical programming paradigms
* developing customized programs and modules
* Writing and examining binary, textual content, and XML records, together with non-compulsory compression, random entry, and textual content and XML parsing
* Leveraging complicated facts kinds, collections, keep watch over buildings, and services
* Spreading application workloads throughout a number of techniques and threads
* Programming SQL databases and key--value DBM records
* Debugging techniques-and utilizing try pushed improvement to prevent insects within the first position
* using Python's usual expression mini-language and module
* Parsing strategies, together with the way to use the third-party PyParsing and PLY modules

Programming in Python three, moment variation, serves as either educational and language reference. It assumes a few earlier programming adventure, and is observed by way of wide downloadable instance code-all of it demonstrated with Python three on home windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. This variation 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 analogous language as Python three. 1.

Example text

A name is used to refer to something—a primitive value, a function, or any of a number of other possibilities. A name is not the same as a string. A name refers to something, whereas a string has no intrinsic meaning to Python. Unlike strings, names are not enclosed in quotes. Giving a name to a value is called binding. One value may have multiple names bound to it, as Figure 2-1 illustrates. Figure 2-1. Names bound to objects The same name can mean different things in different contexts. The technical term for such a context is a namespace.

Python incorporates quite a few modules during its build process. While their contents are in the system, their names are not. Consider the os module just mentioned— all the contents of the module are actually already in Python, but the name os has no meaning until the module is imported. Importing assigns the name of the module to the object that represents the module’s information. Module namespaces Each module has a separate namespace associated with it. In fact, a module object is little more than a namespace.

The command line prompts for input and executes the commands you type. 18 | Chapter 1: Primitives it, find someone knowledgeable about the command-line environment in your operating system to help you resolve the problem. • The way to exit Python follows each platform’s usual conventions: Ctrl-D on Unixbased systems, Ctrl-Z on Windows variants. You can also type quit(). ‖ After you’ve typed at least one line to Python, try Ctrl-P or the up arrow. If that changes the input to what you typed previously, the editing capability is functioning.
