Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Python is a general purpose programming language used in nearly all application domains. This book is a comprehensive reference to the Python programming language. The focus of the 3rd edition is to add coverage of significant new features and new library modules added to the language over the past five years. These features include new style classes, unification of types and classes, xmlrpclip, intertools, bz2 and optparse, making it the most up-to-date Python book on the market. Python is a stable language used in the real world by companies such as Yahoo and Industrial Light and Magic. Contents same as US/UK editions.

We were instructed to use python for a Junior level programming project at the University of Kansas. So, that gave us a semester in which to learn the language AND complete the project.
The first book I picked up was Learning Python, which although targeted more towards first-time programmers, didn't really meet my needs of a source that would provide rapid instruction. Python: Essential Ref to the rescue!
If you've programmed in other languages before, you probably don't really need 20 pages explaing the value of "control statements" or applications using "for" loops. Beazley's book lays down syntax, covers some of the more obscure "features" of the language, and gets you writing Python quickly.
Once we picked up the language, it was the only book we kept around because it also filled the role of reference manual. My one complaint in this area was that for some reason we happen to use a few of the modules that are not outlined in the book. They're included in the section "Undocumented Modules". This shouldn't get in your way too much, most of the excluded modules are either obsolete, too obscure, or too specialized.
Buy whatever books you feel like, or just save yourself the trouble and get this one.
BTW, although totally irrelevant, it also has one of the most convenient form factors. Important if you carry a lot of books around. :)
Oh, and we finished the project..... in case anyone was worried about me.

Let me put it this way - I carry this book to work everyday in my bag, because I don't want to be at home or at work without it.
This is an excellent specimen of a technical reference. Its organization and content are both superb. I have not yet found any errata.
Of course, the Amazon reviewer isn't sure that Python is a good language to work in, and if you agree, then this probably isn't the book for you. The little search box can help you find books about other languages that you do like. I don't recall a similar judgement about Lee et al's Java library reference, and find its inclusion here odd and unharmonious.

Firstly, ignore the review by Mr. Leopold. Despite the fact that that book is not intended as an introduction to the Python language, and mind you, this is stated repeatedly within the foreward and introduction, he seems to insist on treating it as such. Further, he can't seem to decide if he's reviewing the language or the book... All in all, a very poorly written review.
In any case, this is an excellent reference manual, suitable for Python hackers of all experience levels aside from complete newbie. As the sort that hates having a web browser open to sift through documentation, this reference is a godsend. The information presented is often terse, but quite clear.
The first 86 pages are a handy reference for the language itself. Being fairly familiar with Python already, I only skimmed over this section, but it seemed nicely organized.
The next big chunk of the book, the library reference, is nicely done as well. The modules are organized into sections based on general function (Math, OS Services). Each module name is listed in bold, and is followed by a quick list of platforms it is available on and a short description. After that, the authors rattle off the relevant details (classes, functions, variables, and so on) for each module. The classes and functions generally get the bold header with short paragraph description treatment. Everything else is typically listed in tables. This approach works surprisingly well, and though there are some cases where modules with large numbers of functions have them listed in a table, this is only done when it makes sense. A good example of this would be the math module, and its many (not surprisingly) math related functions such as sin, sqrt, and log.

Intending to familiarize myself with Python, I picked up a copy of O'Reilly's Programming Python a couple of years ago. After an initial attempt at going through the book, it has been on my book shelf since. It was simply not organized in a fashion that allowed me to quickly pick up the essentials of the language.
As someone who was already familiar with C/C++ and Perl, but wanting to learn Python, the Python Essential Reference was exactly what I was looking for. Yes, most of the information contained in the book is available in the Python reference documents, but not collected in one place.
In addition to adding examples from his own experience, David Beazley has done an excellent job in concisely summarizing the built-in features of the language as well as providing a nicely indexed library reference.
While this book may not be immediately useful for someone looking specifically for a language tutorial, beginning or advanced Python programmers will get useful information from this book for much longer than most tutorial style books.
Highly recommended.

Beazly has written the perfect reference for Python. This book has every important function *concisely* described and with excellent real code examples (as opposed to the ubiquitous `desktop calculator' ones that many books use).
Whether you are experienced with Python or are just starting out, this is THE python reference.
I'd put it up with Kernighan and Ritchie's "The C Programming Language" and Guy Steele's "Commmon Lisp: The Language (1st ed)". There's no higher praise than that.
