This directory contains example code that accompanies the tutorial presentation. If you'd like to follow along during the presentation you have a few options: 1) Read the .py files in a text editor. Each slide's worth of code is marked. 2) Execute the .py file using the 'interact.py' wrapper. This will start up an enhanced interactive Python session ('python -i') that will the code slides one at a time. This is a great way to explore the concepts and complete the exercises. If readline is available, you also get tab completion and cool history features. (press "up".) Syntax highlighting can be controlled with the --color command line option: see `interact.py --help` for more info. 3) If the interactive mode doesn't appeal, you can still run the code by copy and pasting into an interpreter or modifying the .py itself. The interactive mode has some extra commands specific to the slide presentation. They do not need to be typed with parens(). next (or just press enter on a blank line) Run the next slide of code quick off Turn off 'enter == next' mode if it annoys you echo on|off Toggles the echo of SQL activity to the console. Echo defaults to on. goto # Skip forward to another slide. If you hose your environment, just exit the shell and skip forward to where you left off to reset it.
