Case Study: Python as Secret Weapon for C++ Windows Programming


One of my favorite features of Python is its interactive shell. If you want to try something, you type in the code and try it immediately. For someone whose first coding environment was the equally-immediate Applesoft Basic, this is just as natural. But if your introduction to programming was C, C++, or Java, the benefits might not be apparent, especially if you're trying to do exploratory



One of the consequences of the 2.x-to-3.x Python changeover is that I need to keep both versions around for a while on my Windows dev workstation.Actually, strike that: I need to keep many versions around:2.5.4, because that's the earliest version we support at work for some internal tools2.6.6, because one particular internal tool jumped the gun and started using the "with" statement before we

Mpath: command-line path manipulation for Windows


I'm a command line geek. Windows' style of installing everything in its own directory makes it easier to clean up after uninstallation, but it makes for very long PATH environment variables. If I put every directory containing command line tools in the system path, it gets too long for Windows to handle. So I usually end up doing "PATH=%PATH%;c:\somethingelse\bin" just before I use it. That also

Five Pycon 2010 Talks I Need to See


Following the example of Catherine Devlin and Carl Trachte, I thought I'd put together a list of the five Pycon talks I need to see in 2010. But I couldn't--I struggled to get below a dozen. So here are the top five I need to see, plus the ones I'll probably kick myself for not seeing because they're undoubtedly going to be scheduled in the same slots as the top five:1. Import this, that, and

Fun with itertools


Sometimes it's hard to shake old habits, especially when you've burned them into your brain as the "standard" way to do things. For example, I've been doing network programming with C and C++ for a very long time. One of the standard pieces of code I've written again and again is the "connect with backoff" pattern.If a program needs a continuous network connection, and that connection is lost,
