jaraco.util contains a number of nominally useful, reusable classes and functions. They're designed to be intuitively named and self-documenting (many with extensive doctests). Browse the source for details.


Some of the more interesting modules include:

  • .dictlib contains RangeMap, a dictionary-like object that maps a range of values to a given value.
