If all you recognize approximately desktops is tips on how to shop textual content records, then this can be the ebook for you.

Example text

Try: file = open(filename, 'r') except TypeError as e: # The filename wasn't valid for use with the filesystem. error(e) return 0 except EnvironmentError as e: # Something went wrong reading the file. readlines()) N Caution Raising an exception isn’t the only thing that tells Python to avoid the else block. If the function returns a value at any time inside the try block, Python will simply return the value as instructed, skipping the else block altogether. Proceeding Regardless of Exceptions Many functions perform some kind of setup or resource allocation that must be cleaned up before returning control to external code.

Chapter 5 shows how you can write your own iterable objects that work similarly to range(). In addition to providing iterable objects, there are a number of ways to iterate over these objects in different situations, for different purposes. The for loop is the most obvious technique, but Python offers other forms of syntax as well, which are outlined in this section. Sequence Unpacking Generally, you would assign one value to one variable at a time, so when you have a sequence, you would assign the entire sequence to a single variable.

The union of two sets is a lot like a bit-wise OR operation, so Python represents it with the pipe character (|), which is the same as is used for bit-wise OR (where each byte is compared). union({4, 5, 6}) {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} The logical complement to that operation is the intersection, where the result is the set of all items common to the original sets. Again, this is analogous to a bit-wise operation, but this time it’s the bit-wise AND, and again, Python uses the ampersand (&) to represent the operation as it pertains to sets.
