Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Python Essential Reference, 3rd Edition, is a comprehensive reference to the Python programming language. The focus of this latest edition is to add coverage of significant new features and new library modules added to the language over the past five years. Clearly written with concise organization, the new features covered include new style classes, unification of types and classes, xmlrpclip, intertools, bz2 and optparse, making it the most up-to-date Python book on the market.

Book News Annotation:

Written for programmers, this reference guide to the Python programming language covers the core language, some 100 modules in the standard library, and the techniques used to extend Python with procedures in C or C++. Coverage expands on and clarifies existing Python documentation, especially for advanced topics such as operating system interfaces, threads, network programming, and Unicode. Beazley is the developer of a software package for integrating C programs with interpreted languages.
