The Python Papers Volue 2 Issue 1 now available

G'day Pythonistas! Welcome to Issue Two of The Python Papers. It has
been an exciting time and we are pleased to have reached this
milestone. I'd like to say a big hello to all the people who have
provided their input in making this a reality: the python-advocacy
list, comp.lang.python, the Python User Groups that responded to the
call to participate and also many individuals. This is also the first
issue where we have attempted to publish both a PDF and an HTML
edition.

The latest version, and most recent blog posts are available at
http://pythonpapers.org/. If you would like to show up on our tracking
statistics, please use this path. Direct links also available:

PDF available at : http://archive.pythonpapers.org/ThePythonPapersVolume2Issue1.pdf
HTML  available at : http://archive.pythonpapers.org/ThePythonPapersVolume2Issue1.html

Please note the new volume number commences with the calendar year, so
the volume number has increased while the issue number is the same as
the last issue.

The choice of format was clearly an issue for many people on both
sides. Going forward, we will continue to use PDF as our primary
'authorative' version for the purposes of page numbering and
referencing, however the HTML edition will be made public in a day or
two after further editing to cope with conversion effects.

How to crash Python in 1 easy step (python 2.2.2)
I'm not sure if this is a python bug or a bug in an associated library, and I'm not even sure how to correctly report it, but here is Anytime python is accepting keyboard input, whether it's with raw_input, or sitting on the command line waiting for the user to type code, you can crash python by holding ctrl+shift and then pressing enter. This is on a RedHat 9.0 system running on an Athlon 600. Basically everything about the system is standard except for what's been updated by RedHat itself. If anyone who has the time and ability to track down this bug needs more information, please email me.

I doubt it is a problem in Python, it works nicely on both my windows and my linux machines (python 2.2.3). Just a gut feeling: reinstall/upgrade your readline library..... --Irme...

AIX + GCC 2.95.3 - Python (2.1 or 2.2) - building the shared library (.so) for python
Hi all, (If I use standard -shared linking, during the _import python is crashing.) As seen in in AIX-NOTES there should be used ld_so_aix. But I suspect that it was prepared for standard xlC (CC) compiler. How to make it running for GCC compiler? Now I receive following error: gcc -Wl,-einitlib.a -Wl,-bE:lib.a.exp -Wl,-bI:./python.exp -Wl,-bhalt:4 -Wl,-bM: SRE -Wl,-T512 -Wl,-H512 -lm -o lib.a. -shared -Wl,-bbigtoc -L../../../../lib/pow erpc_aix_4.3_gcc -L/users/tbech/ND/Python/usr/local/lib/python2.1/config python. exp y.tab.o lex.yy.o idlerr.o idlutil.o idltype.o idlrepoId.o idlscope.o idlexpr ..o idlast.o idlvalidate.o idldump.o idlconfig.o idlfixed.o idlpython.o ld: 0711-418 ERROR: Import or export file lib.a.exp at line 10: A symbol name may only be followed by an export attribute or an address. The line is being ignored. When I remove this line 10 from lib.a.exp it is telling that several Py* functions are not exported and that entry point initlib.a not found. Additional questions: 1. Why is such nonuderstandable-ultimate-tricky solution prepared for AIX? 2. Does it work only for xlC (CC) or also for GCC? If, how to do it? 3. What is the entry point function? How I can find it in the sources? 4. Seems that makexp_aix wrongly makes exports :( Thanks in advance, Tom hab <hab@polbox.com> writes: > (If I use standard -shared linking, during the _import python is crashing.) > As seen in in AIX-NOTES there should be used ld_so_aix...

Who is using python-ldap with Python 1.5.x and 2.0-2.2?
HI! I'd like to hear from the Python community whether support for Python version prior to 2.3 is still needed in python-ldap. Please tell me which Python version you're using and why it'd be important for you to have python-ldap updates still supporting it. BTW: Actually older Python versions are not tested with recent python-ldap since at least two years. But I'd like to clearly decide on that.

Both releases include hundreds of bugfixes. There has recently been a lot of discussion about XML-based denial of service attacks.
