Description:
The word 'Dive' on Dive Into Python has already suggested that this book is not for newbies, for wimps, or For Dummies. It assumes a lot about you. You need to know at least one real object-oriented language, like Java, C++, or Delphi, and at least one scripting language, like Perl, Visual Basic, or JavaScript. And finally you must have installled Python for your operating system. Dive Into Python is a hands-on guide to the Python language. Each chapter starts with a real, complete code sample, proceeds to pick it apart and explain the pieces, and then puts it all back together in a summary at the end.
