Publisher Comments:

Whether you're an experienced programmer looking to get into Python or grizzled Python veteran who remembers the days when you had to import the string module, Dive Into Python is your 'desert island' Python book.-- Joey deVilla, Slashdot contributor

As a complete newbie to the languageI constantly had those little thoughts like, 'this is the way a programming language should be taught.'-- Lasse Koskela, JavaRanch

Apress has been profuse in both its quantity and quality of releases — and (this book is) surely worth adding to your technical reading budget for skills development.-- Blane Warrene, Technology NotesPython is a new and innovative scripting language. It is set to replace Perl as the programming language of choice for shell scripters, and for serious application developers who want a feature-rich, yet simple language to deploy their products.

Dive Into Python is a hands-on guide to the Python language. Each chapter starts with a real, complete code sample, proceeds to pick it apart and explain the pieces, and then puts it all back together in a summary at the end.

This is the perfect resource for you if you like to jump into languages fast and get going right away. If you're just starting to learn Python, first pick up a copy of Magnus Lie Hetland's Practical Python.

Synopsis:

Dive Into Python is a hands-on guide to the Python language. Each chapter starts with a real complete code sample, proceeds to pick it apart and explain the pieces, and then puts it all back together again in a summary at the end.

Python is a new and innovative scripting language. It is set to replace Perl as the programming language of choice for shell scripters, and for serious application developers wanting a feature rich yet simple language to deploy their products in.

This book is not for newbies, for wimps, or for dummies(TM). It assumes a lot about you:
- You know at least one real object-oriented language, such as Java, C#, or Delphi.

- You know at least one other scripting language, such as Perl, Visual Basic, or Javascript.
If you're just getting started programming, that doesn't mean you can't learn Python. Python is an easy language to learn, but you should probably learn it somewhere else. That said, Dive Into Python will be a guide for people who can jump into languages fast and get going.
