<title>waterworks 0.2.5: Because everyone has their own utility library</title>
</head>
<body>

<h1>waterworks (version 0.2.5)</h1>

Collected library tools by David McClosky, Drew Perttula, and Micha
Elsner.  While Drew and Micha have contributed code, they should not be
considered on the hook for supporting this code.

<h2>Version history</h2>
<ul>
<li>0.1e - (December 29, 2006) <i>e</i> for embarassing, initial "release"
<li>0.1f - (March 1, 2007) barely less embarassing, some bug fixes and more documentation
<li>0.2 - (July 13, 2009) still pretty embarassing, several new modules (ClusterMetrics, FunctionPickler, HeapQueue, PrecRec, Probably, robust_apply, TerminalTitle, vimdiff)
<li>0.2.5 - (June 26, 2010) add QuickColorize, waterworks.Numbers, bugfixes and other minor things
</ul>

<h2>Contents</h2>

<ul>
<li><b>AIMA</b> - Provide some widely useful utilities. (not written by us, but slightly modified from the original -- see <a href="http://aima.cs.berkeley.edu/python/readme.html">http://aima.cs.berkeley.edu/python/readme.html</a>)
<li><b>ClusterMetrics</b> - a metric cluster**** of cluster metrics!
<li><b>ExitCodes</b> - Create textual descriptions of exit statuses.
<li><b>FigUtil</b> - Tools for creating tables and figures in papers.
<li><b>FunctionPickler</b> - Allows you to create pickle-able references to functions.
<li><b>HeapQueue</b> - A more object-oriented wrapper of the heapq module.
<li><b>Histogram</b> - Tools for creating and displaying histograms.
<li><b>IntRange</b> - Integer Range Parser and Generator
<li><b>IntShelve</b> - Just like shelve, but keys are always integers instead of strings.
<li><b>LazyList</b> - Lets you treat an interator as a list by filling in the list on demand.
<li><b>PrecRec</b> - standard calculation of precision, recall and f-score.
<li><b>Probably</b> - Potentially useful functions for probability, statistics, and machine learning
<li><b>Selectron</b> - A selecting widget for Tix.
<li><b>Tailer</b> - <tt>tail -f</tt> for multiple files written natively in Python.
<li><b>TeXTable</b> - Convert a Python table into a LaTeX/TeX table.
<li><b>TerminalTitle</b> - Lets you change the title of your terminal in *NIX.
<li><b>ThreadedJobs</b> - Wraps twisted.python.threadpool in a way that makes more sense to me.
<li><b>TkGeomSavers</b> - Common geometry behaviors for Tk/Tix
<li><b>diffprint</b> - Helps visualize diffs by giving you two parallel lists to print.
<li><b>iterextras</b> - Some useful iterator functions from py2.4 test_itertools.py plus a couple added items
<li><b>robust_apply</b> - Simple front-end to louie.robustapply.robust_apply.
<li><b>vimdiff</b> - Simple interface for visualizing differences between two strings using vimdiff (or similar differs)
</ul>

<h3>Data structure specific collections</h3>

<ul>
<li><b>waterworks.Dictionaries</b>
<li><b>waterworks.Files</b>
<li><b>waterworks.Numbers</b>
<li><b>waterworks.Processes</b> - for creating system processes
<li><b>waterworks.Sequences</b> - ists, tuples, etc.
<li><b>waterworks.Streams</b> - file-like streams
<li><b>waterworks.Strings</b>
<li><b>waterworks.Tools</b> - general tools and debugging helpers
<li><b>waterworks.new_isinstance</b> - version of isinstance which can handle module reload()ing better
</ul>

<h2>Installation</h2>

Standard Python distutils install (<tt>python setup.py install</tt>) should work.  Please email me if you have any problems.  Most code should work anywhere, some is *NIX/Linux specific.
