Porting to Python 3: An in-depth guide How to:python programming under Ubuntu If you are new to python programming and if you’re using ubuntu linux as your operating system then you can start programming easily as Ubuntu comes up with the command line version of python pre-installed. Ubuntu community develops its own tools and scripts under python,so you can learn a lot from the community. Official Community also offers bounties on some of its python projects. So in that way you can also get in touch with the experienced python developers. In python you have two choices to learn how to program, one is with command line version and another is IDLE. Command Line Command line version of python is already installed in Ubuntu. You can also write the program with help of text editor like gedit or Emacs. or you can use exit(); or CTRL-D This will exit from the interpreter and return back to the terminal.IDLE If you don’t want to use the command line version of python then there is another choice “IDLE”. This will execute the program in the IDLE. [1] Introduction to python

Python en:Table of Contents You have seen how you can reuse code in your program by defining functions once. What if you wanted to reuse a number of functions in other programs that you write? As you might have guessed, the answer is modules. There are various methods of writing modules, but the simplest way is to create a file with a .py extension that contains functions and variables. Another method is to write the modules in the native language in which the Python interpreter itself was written. A module can be imported by another program to make use of its functionality. Example (save as module_using_sys.py): import sys print('The command line arguments are:')for i in sys.argv: print i print '\n\nThe PYTHONPATH is', sys.path, '\n' $ python module_using_sys.py The command line arguments are: module_using_sys.py we are arguments The PYTHONPATH is ['/tmp/py', # many entries here, not shown here '/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages'] How It Works 11.1. 11.2. 11.3. 11.4. 11.5.

Tutorial Introduction to PyMVPA — PyMVPA 2.3.0 documentation In this tutorial we are going to take a look at all major parts of PyMVPA, introduce the most important concepts, and explore particular functionality in real-life analysis examples. This tutorial also serves as basic course material for workshops on introductions to MVPA. Please contact us, if you are interested in hosting a PyMVPA workshop at your institution. Please note that this tutorial is only concerned with aspects directly related to PyMVPA. It does not teach basic Python programming. Throughout the tutorial there will be little exercises with tasks that are meant to deepen the understanding of a particular problem or to train important skills. Through the course of the tutorial we will analyze real BOLD fMRI data. The pymvpa2-tutorial command (installed with PyMVPA) can be invoked in a console in order to launch a tutorial session. Virtually every Python script starts with some import statements that load functionality provided elsewhere. >>> from mvpa2.tutorial_suite import *

Python - Quick Guide Python is a high-level, interpreted, interactive and object oriented-scripting language. Python is InterpretedPython is InteractivePython is Object-OrientedPython is Beginner's Language Python was developed by Guido van Rossum in the late eighties and early nineties at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands. Python's feature highlights include: Easy-to-learnEasy-to-readEasy-to-maintainA broad standard libraryInteractive ModePortableExtendableDatabasesGUI ProgrammingScalable The most up-to-date and current source code, binaries, documentation, news, etc. is available at the official website of Python: Python Official Website : You can download the Python documentation from the following site. Python Documentation Website : www.python.org/doc/ Interactive Mode Programming: Invoking the interpreter without passing a script file as a parameter brings up the following prompt: >>> print "Hello, Python!"
