  1. Re: most sustainable file format - an address book

    Another +1 for vCard. It's made for this specific application, and it's recognized by tons of address book apps and email clients.

    Sure. Save the data to a cStringIO object rather than a file.

    Just a quick question... are you interested in the answer to this question for its own sake, or are you doing this as a programming exercise? If the former, there's an easy way to calculate the...

    [SOLVED] Re: Recursion in Python

    This sounds distressingly like a homework assignment, but I'm going to assume it's not.

    In Python:



    def myLuc (n):
    if n == 0 or n == 1: return n
    else: return 3 * myLuc (n-1) -...

    Re: atoi and getchar C programming

    Unless the assignment specifies you must do so, why bother converting the char to an int at all? Just check to see if it's '1', or '2', or something else, and act accordingly. :-)

    Linkifying a PDF with Python

    Does anyone have any example code that opens a PDF file in Python and adds a link to it? I've been reading documentation for python-pypdf and python-reportlab, but I haven't been able to make any...

    Re: Project Euler 26...

    This one is easier to solve mathematically than to write a program for it. I'd suggest looking at a couple elementary number theory books.
  8. Re: bash command to kill all processes of a user

    I can't help but notice how Cthulhu-esque that command string looks. :P (Appropriate, too, if it does what you're claiming -- I don't doubt it does, but I'm too lazy to look at the man page for...

    Re: how to search a two dimensional array

    Unless you know something further about the elements of the array, there is no more efficient method of searching than simply iterating through every element. Think about it: unless there's some...

    No, your first while loop is not being ignored. It's just that when x > y, the value of

  11. Re: Tkinter (Python) running from command line.

    This, too, may be sort of obvious, but if you have the shebang line, you don't need to name the file ending with ".py" to get Python to recognize it. So, you could even save your file as...

    Re: a little schcme/lisp question

    The cond special form evaluates the conditionals lazily. Your new-if function has to evaluate predicate, then-clause, and else-clause every time, even if (for instance) the predicate is true.

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox 3.5.1?

    I'm using the version from the Jaunty repos right now and, other than a couple of add-ons I had to replace, it's working great. I've noticed a definite speed increase. Too bad it isn't as fast as...

    [all variants] Re: I'm curious... ATI vs. Nvidia

    The impression I'm getting is that ATI cards work serviceability well, but if you need tonnes of raw performance, it's nVidia all the way. Is that correct?

    Re: Restricting Python

    The short answer is: if you're embedding it in a C or C++ app, you can't really do that efficiently.

    A slightly longer answer is: You really either need to trust your users or not allow...

    [ubuntu] Re: drapes won't open anymore

    Try running drapes from the terminal. What error does it give?

    As for the fix, doing


    sudo apt-get purge drapes && sudo apt-get install drapes

    will probably fix it.
