AT&T Labs Research - Yoix What is Yoix...? The Yoix scripting language is a general-purpose programming language that uses syntax and functions familiar to users of C and Java. It is not an object oriented language, but makes use of over 150 object types that provide access to most of the standard Java classes. Because the Yoix interpreter is built entirely using pure JavaTM technology, it means that Yoix applications are cross-platform, GUI-capable and both network and thread friendly, yet Yoix developers find themselves insulated from the more cumbersome and tricky parts of coding the same functionality directly in Java. Python Cheat Sheet String String Methods Array Audio/Video Resources for Python There is a growing body of podcasts, screencasts and video presentations for the Python community. This page collects some of the best and provides a roadmap to the rest. If you would like to contribute materials, please see the our pointers for creating screencasts.
s Python Class - Educational Materials Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is.
Code Like a Pythonista: Idiomatic Python In this interactive tutorial, we'll cover many essential Python idioms and techniques in depth, adding immediately useful tools to your belt.

Getting Started with Java IDL Java™ IDL is a technology for distributed objects – that is, objects interacting on different platforms across a network. Java IDL enables objects to interact regardless of whether they're written in the Java programming language or another language such as C, C++, COBOL, or others. This is possible because Java IDL is based on the Common Object Request Brokerage Architecture (CORBA), an industry-standard distributed object model. A key feature of CORBA is IDL, a language-neutral Interface Definition Language. Each language that supports CORBA has its own IDL mapping--and as its name implies, Java IDL supports the mapping for Java. To learn more about the IDL-to-Java language mapping, see IDL-to-Java Language Mapping.
10. Brief Tour of the Standard Library — Python v2.7.5 documentation 10.1. Operating System Interface The os module provides dozens of functions for interacting with the operating system: >>> import os>>> os.getcwd() # Return the current working directory'C:\\Python26'>>> os.chdir('/server/accesslogs') # Change current working directory>>> os.system('mkdir today') # Run the command mkdir in the system shell0 Be sure to use the import os style instead of from os import *. This will keep os.open() from shadowing the built-in open() function which operates much differently.
The Python Tutorial Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are freely available in source or binary form for all major platforms from the Python Web site, and may be freely distributed. The same site also contains distributions of and pointers to many free third party Python modules, programs and tools, and additional documentation. The Python interpreter is easily extended with new functions and data types implemented in C or C++ (or other languages callable from C).
