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. 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. Dive Into Python will be a guide for people who can jump into languages fast and get going.Pilgrim, Mark is the author of 'Dive into Python', published 2004 under ISBN 9781590593561 and ISBN 1590593561.
