This directory contains various demonstrations of what you can do with Python. They were all written by me except where explicitly stated otherwise -- in general, demos contributed by others ends up in the ../Contrib directory, unless I think they're of utmost general importance (like Matt Conway's Tk demos). A fair number of utilities that are useful when while developing Python code can be found in the ../Tools directory -- some of these can also be considered good examples of how to write Python code. Finally, in order to save disk space and net bandwidth, not all subdirectories listed here are distributed. They are listed just in case I change my mind about them. classes Some examples of how to use classes. embed An example of embedding Python in another application (see also pysvr). extend An example of using the generic Makefile.pre.in from the Misc directory to build a statically linked or shared extension module. ibrowse An Emacs info file browser (uses stdwin). See also ../doc (the Python library documentation can be converted to info format). md5test Test program for the optional md5 module. pysvr An example of embedding Python in a threaded application. rpc A set of classes for building clients and servers for Sun RPC. scripts Some useful Python scripts that I put in my bin directory. No optional built-in modules needed. sockets Examples for the new built-in module 'socket'. sgi Demos that only run on Silicon Graphics machines. These require at least one of the optional built-in modules that only make sense for the SGI, such as 'gl', 'al', and 'sv'. Split in subdirectories per subject. stdwin Demos that use the STDWIN library. Require the 'stdwin' built-in module. threads Demos that use the 'thread' module. (Currently these only run on SGIs, but this may change in the future.) tkinter Demos using the Tk interface (including Matt Conway's excellent set of demos).
