I've been messing around with Python for the past 6 months and I'm loving it. Today I went to my second UtahPython users group meeting and had a lot of fun and learned a ton of stuff.
- Supy bot - an IRC bot written in Python.
supybot-doxygen - A plugin for supy bot that can provide api documentation for any software that uses doxygen.
- This could be really useful at work if I can setup an internal IRC server for the developers to hang out.
- Objectify is a module in python for parsing XML files.
- doctest - a python module for TDD that is super simple. I'm really excited about this. Thanks to Matt for showing me how to use this.
Here's the task: Write a simple python program that can take page numbers as user input and convert it to a list of numbers.
User Input: 0, 1, 5, 7-10 Output: 0,1,5,7,8,9,10
###### PrintParser.py ####### #!/usr/bin/env python def convert(inp): """ * Get the input from user. * Parse the input to extract numbers ** Split by comma *** Each item in the list will then be split by '-' **** Populate the number between a-b using range(a,b) >>> convert("")  >>> convert("1")  >>> convert("1,2") [1, 2] >>> convert("1,2-5") [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] >>> convert("1-3,2-5,8,10,15-20") [1, 2, 3, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20] """ if not inp: return  pages =  comma_separated =  comma_separated = inp.split(",") for item in comma_separated: if "-" in item: a = item.split("-") pages.extend(range(int(a),int(a)+1)) else: pages.append(int(item)) return pages if __name__ == '__main__' : import doctest doctest.testmod()
I went to my first Hapkido class today. I have a very good (and respected) friend from work, who is already taking that class and he recommended it.
