Publisher Comments:

Python Standard Library is an essential guide for serious Python programmers. Python is a modular language that imports most useful operations from the standard library (basic support modules; operating system interfaces; network protocols; file formats; data conversions; threads and processes; and data storage). You can't really program in Python without using it. In this book, author Fredrik Lundh, creator of the Python Imaging Library (PIL), delivers tested, accurate documentation of all the modules in the Python Standard Library, along with over 300 annotated example scripts using the modules.Python Standard Library renders this valuable information in a clean, easy-to-read format, yet doesn't talk down to readers. This accurate and complete reference documentation is for the Python programmer who wants the facts and little else.The book is based on the author's work with the Python newsgroup: he reviewed more than 2500 questions and answers to that newsgroup in order to make sure the book covered what Python users really wanted to know. An earlier version of this book has been available electronically for over a year, so the material has been tested by Python programmers in real-life applications.This version of Python Standard Library covers all the new modules and related information for Python 2.0, the first new major release of Python in four years.

Book News Annotation:

The Python Standard Library, shipped with every distribution of the programming language Python, is a set of time-saving modules that perform common programming tasks. This book/CD-ROM package documents these modules, which can be used for all forms of data representation, support for threads and pipes, all important file formats including XML and HTML, support for major Internet applications, and database and persistent storage. Some 350 short sample scripts are provided. The CD-ROM contains programming examples and a demonstration copy of PythonWorks IDE. Lundh is an expert on the use of Python with images and graphics and is the creator of the Python Imaging Library.
