Found this useful Python snippet in Python Essential Reference by David M.Beazley today. It seems you can write to files in a similar way to how you would with IOStream in C++ by using the ‘>>’ syntax.
f = open('out.txt', 'w')
print >>f, 'Hello, World'
Unfortunately this only works in Python 2.x, and will break in Python 3 — so perhaps it is best left alone. Nonetheless, it’s a feature I didn’t realize before today!
Four years ago I wrote a script with Brandon Kite to demonstrate vectors (and to make a text based while learning C++). It was released shortly afterwards, just for the hell of it, even though it was certainly nothing special.
Anyways, four years later, and it is still online. I just came across it again and updated it from version 0.1 to 0.2.
You can find it on the scripts page, or download it from pastebin.
My site/blog has been down in recent months as my old domain (kahrn.com) expired. I have now moved the blog over to this new domain (rickyhewitt.com).
I have also opted to use WordPress as the main platform for my site form now on, dropping my custom scripting and CodeIgniter.
I haven’t really had a chance to update much of the blog, so some of the stuff will be broken, and I have also lost a few posts which were made last year. Hopefully I will have some time to update some of the old content, and also add some of the new content of which I have planned.
Take note that some of the content/scripts/applications/etc on this site are very old, and will likely be broken until I take a look. I will also be using the default WordPress theme until I have the time to develop my own.
Until then, if you have an iPad, go download some free iPad Wallpapers from http://ipadwalls.net!
