|ironfroggy||no point in compiling it if you cant test it, hence the suggestion of a buildbot service.|
|KirkMcDonald||stnsls: MinGW is more than just the Windows port of GCC.|
|stnsls||buildbot... never heard of that..|
|KirkMcDonald||stnsls: It provides all of the Windows headers and so forth needed for cross-compilation.|
|ironfroggy||buildbot is a system for completely automating the building, testing, and packaging of projects across any number of platform and hardware combinations.|
it is designed even to automatically checkout the latest revision from version control and build it for you, and alert you when your changes break anything in different setups.
|unfo||stnsls: what does your code do? does it really have to be a compiled extension?|
|t35t0r||everyone prepared for perl + python announce joint development jokes?|
|ironfroggy||oh, thats right. tomorrow is the one day a year i read slashdot.|
|stnsls||unfo, it is some calculation engine.. I think windows users are happy if I can distribute win32 binaries..|
|unfo||i wonder what the wikipedia front page will say this year :)|
|t35t0r||tomorrow slashdot turns into the onion|
|ironfroggy||stnsls: that doesnt have anything to do with wanting to write an extension.|
|unfo||stnsls: you mean you want to use py2exe to make Windows binaries of your python script?|
|shuveb||A C program dumps raw structs on to the wire. what is the most natural method to read the struct and dump it into a python dict/list?|
|stnsls||nomego, I have my extension written.|
|shuveb||i mean in a socket program|
|ironfroggy||shuveb: the struct module|
|stnsls||this extension is already published but no win32 binaries. that's all...|
|shuveb||ironfroggy, just the answer i was expecting :)|
|action||stnsls looking at buildbot..|
|stnsls||looking at buildbot..|
|shuveb||ironfroggy, i will try that|
|unfo||nanousr: do you know the basics of object-oriented development, e.g. what an object is?|
|nanousr||ironfroggy: Do you know what module i need for the bz2.BZ2Decompressor|
hence the "bz2." part
|stnsls||buildbot is not what I need. :>|
|ironfroggy||everything i mentioned for you is part of the standard library included with python.|
stnsls: why not?
|nanousr||I'm getting a: NameError: name 'bz2dec' is not defined|
|ironfroggy||nanousr: that was an example i used as a name you might give to the bz2.BZ2Decompressor object you would create.|
notice that i mentioned the instansiation of that class in my messages.
|nanousr||Ok, sorry, but I havn't been working with python too long|
|wolfeon||does Python have class unloading?|
ex. Webware restarts if you use AutoReload(if a page chagnes, restart web server).
is there an type of unload for python 2.5? LIke how Java and Mono/and MS's .NET works?
|nilton||what is the purpose of unloading, wolfeon?|
|wolfeon||nilton: if you change code in a class.. reload class..|
