Matt's Scripts live on (only now it is Anna's Scripts)
Matt's Scripts also has a section for allied internet resources such as web hosting, domain name registration, search engine optimisation and submission and webmaster resources. If you have an interesting website in any of the aforementioned industries you may also submit it to iGeneric web scripts directory or scripts section
Who was Matt?
Sport (football and stuff)
(oh, I should probably mention my girlfriend too!)
|Current status||I was at Leeds university studying Computer Science (did you guess?). Presently I am very busy with university coursework/exams etc which unfortunately means that I cannot really afford the time (or money - internet access costs!) to update the site, but we'll see.|
Scripts and Code
The syntax being so simple and so close to natural language makes Python easier to learn for beginners; it’s perfect for teaching the basics of programming to people who have never programmed before. Python still allows you to saturate your code with parentheses and cryptic variable names if that’s what you really like to do, but the basic syntax is much cleaner and certainly no less powerful than that of other languages. I also like Python’s multi-paradigm nature - it may be used as a simple imperative language, as an object-oriented language, or as a functional language.
As well as having fantastic standard library, Python is hugely extensible. Extension modules may easily be hand coded in C or C++ to eliminate bottlenecks, or bindings for entire C/C++ libraries can easily be created with SWIG or ctypes. A fantastic example of one such library is PyOpenGL, a Python wrapper around OpenGL, created using ctypes. It allows all the really hard work to be done in C and by the GPU, while allowing the flexibility of Python to used. Python may also be easily embedded in C and C++ applications and used as a scripting language (e.g. 3D software such as Maya).
