I'm trying to learn python, and am running into a problem - I can't seem to learn just by reading the tutorial. So does anyone know of a website that has example programs in Python, that won't be over my head (I only know the basics - lists, functions, etc.).

Thanks!

http://www.daniweb.com/code/python.html

that site has tons of stuff for beginners

Heres a good one that teaches simple recursion

# Fibonacci number series

def fibonacci():

"""a generator for Fibonacci numbers, goes to next number in series on each call"""

a, b = 0, 1

while True:

yield a

a, b = b, a + b

f = fibonacci()

for x in range(13):

print f.next(), # 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144

print

def fibo(n):

"""

use recursion to get Fibonacci numbers, returns the Fibonacci value for n

not very efficient because of the many function calls

"""

if n < 2:

return n

else:

return fibo(n - 1) + fibo(n - 2)

for x in range(13):

print "fibo(%d) = %d" % (x, fibo(x))

print

print "Calculating ..."

print

print "fibo(%d) = %d" % (30, fibo(30)) # this takes a moment!

another good source of samples is ActionState's recipe cookbook: http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Python/Cookbook/

But looking at examples will not teach you writing your own code: you need to write code, solve simple problems. Wiki in my sig has some.
