Python Journal new issue 2(2) is out and about at pythonjournal.cognizor.com with articles and a fairly detailed digest of the content of the 4 very full days of the 2002 Python10 conference. Focus in the articles of this issue is on deepening understanding of how python works -- recursion, PySpy.
First -- The pythonista thinks about repeating functions: Alternative recursion methods with iteration splitoff auxiliaries, having different oopses and efficiencies. Then -- Inspect your own pet python's looping and leaping. In realtime! Tutorial on Malcolmson's PySpy shows what documentation ;) looks like inside out, how basic program structures including recursion vs. iteration really slither along. Screenshots, congeners (and cf. inspect.py).
PySpy's 5th generation architecture mixes several programming languages like many of the python10 works. Expand to the level you want, then watch the changing of your variables and function calls as python proceeds along its train of thought.... With its introspection, PySpy teases us with the possibility of python consciousness. Great study tool.
