Python, a powerful and flexible general purpose programming language is growing in popularity as more people become interested in programming using open source languages. Python Power!: The Comprehensive Guide shows readers how to use Python to run Web sites, write GUI interfaces, control number-crunching code, process large XML data sets, build test suites for C or Java code, and much more. Technical topics are explained clearly and concisely and end-of-chapter projects encourage the reader to program on their own. A detailed table of contents and a complete, well-organized index make this book a great reference tool.
