Fredrik Lundh's Python Standard Library offers an excellent tour of some of the most significant modules in the current Python 2.0 standard, making it perfect for any working Python developer. This book will be essential for programmers because it combines sample code with tonnes of professional guidance.
For over 200 of Python 2.0's built-in modules, the book provides sample script code written by a regular Python newsgroup contributor. It also demonstrates how to use Python to solve typical programming issues. You receive sample scripts for a variety of solutions centered on various Python modules rather than a function-based guide.
The fundamental operating system, math, and string-related modules are covered in the early sections. You'll learn more about the file system and Python's strong support for files and directories. You can make your Python programs more secure by understanding various encryption techniques.
The next step is to set up Python to multitask with several threads and to enable pipe and signal communication between applications. After providing sample pickling scripts for Python objects to and from files, the book goes into Internet-related modules. Python's wide networking support for low-level sockets to high-level Internet protocols, including e-mail and FTP, is covered after a description of its support for XML, HTML, and SGML. Any Python coder will benefit greatly from sample email routines.
