When I was learning Python I had to go all over the web to find the examples I needed. I decided to put some common examples here to make it easier for others who are learning Python to find. If these scripts are helpful or if you have suggestions for other examples that should be added, please let me know. Please note all of my scripts are compatible with the 2.x version of Python and may need to be modified to work in the 3.x version of Python. There are significant differences in the two versions of Python. If you need help choosing which version to use see http://wiki.python.org/moin/Python2orPython3. I use the 2.x version of Python because it is the default version in Ubuntu and BT5.
This is not meant to be a Python tutorial. If you need a tutorial please check out the following resources:
read_file.py- opens a file, reads each line, and processes the line.
write_file.py- write data to a file
read_write_file.py- opens two files, read from one, write to the other
server.py- Python server with sockets
client.py- Python client with sockets
read_parse_url.py- open a url and parse data using lxml and BeautifulSoup
regular_expression.py- the basics of using regular expressions
read_xml_file.py- open an xml file and parse the data using ElementTree
- Need some ideas for examples.
