“Hellmann’s writing has become an indispensable resource for me and many others as it fills a critical gap in Python Documentation with examples.”
– Jesse Noller, Python Core Developer and PSF Board Member
Master the Powerful Python Standard Library through Real Code Examples
The Python Standard Library contains hundreds of modules for interacting with the operating system, interpreter, and Internet–all extensively tested and ready to jump-start your application development. The Python Standard Library by Example (2 Volume Set) introduces virtually every important area of the Python 2.7 library through concise, stand-alone source code/output examples, designed for easy learning and reuse.
Building on his popular Python Module of the Week blog series, author and Python expert Doug Hellmann focuses on “showing” not “telling.” He explains code behavior through downloadable examples that fully demonstrate each feature.
You’ll find practical code for working with text, data types, algorithms, math, file systems, networking, the Internet, XML, email, cryptography, concurrency, runtime and language services, and much more. Each section fully covers one module, and links to valuable additional resources, making this book an ideal tutorial and reference. Coverage includes
If you’re new to Python, this book will quickly give you access to a whole new world of functionality. If you’ve worked with Python before, you’ll discover new, powerful solutions and better ways to use the modules you’ve already tried.

Buchbeschreibung Addison Wesley Jun 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - One of Python's most popular features is the 'standard library' of modules that serve as the foundation of an application and give the language its motto: 'Batteries Included.' The documentation for the standard library serves as a reference manual, but often requires experimentation to understand the precise meaning of the text. In contrast, this book provides example programs for over 100 of the most commonly used standard library modules, explaining their purpose and demonstrating how to use them in your daily programming tasks. The features of each module are examined in order, building from basic to complex or following the order you will need to use them in a real application. The examples are presented as complete working programs, along with their output, leaving no question about how to interpret the reference guide. 1302 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780321767349
