This directory contains various demonstrations of what you can do with
Python. They were all written by me except where explicitly stated
otherwise -- in general, demos contributed by others ends up in the
../Contrib directory, unless I think they're of utmost general
importance (like Matt Conway's Tk demos).
A fair number of utilities that are useful when while developing
Python code can be found in the ../Tools directory -- some of these
can also be considered good examples of how to write Python code.
Finally, in order to save disk space and net bandwidth, not all
subdirectories listed here are distributed. They are listed just
in case I change my mind about them.
cgi CGI examples (see also ../Tools/faqwiz/.)
classes Some examples of how to use classes.
comparisons A set of responses to a really old language-comparison
curses A set of curses demos.
embed An example of embedding Python in another application
(see also pysvr).
imputil Demonstration subclasses of imputil.Importer.
md5test Test program for the optional md5 module.
metaclasses The code from the 1.5 metaclasses paper on the web.
parser Example using the parser module.
pdist Old, unfinished code messing with CVS, RCS and remote
pysvr An example of embedding Python in a threaded
rpc A set of classes for building clients and servers for
scripts Some useful Python scripts that I put in my bin
directory. No optional built-in modules needed.
sockets Examples for the new built-in module 'socket'.
threads Demos that use the 'thread' module. (Currently these
only run on SGIs, but this may change in the future.)
tix Demos using the Tix widget set addition to Tkinter.
tkinter Demos using the Tk interface (including Matt Conway's
excellent set of demos).
xml Some XML demos.
zlib Some demos for the zlib module (see also the standard
library module gzip.py).
