I think that would be very interesting thay Python would have a module
for working on base 96 too. 
It could be converted to base 96 the digests from hashlib module, and
random bytes used on crypto (to create the salt, the IV, or a key).
As you can see here , the printable ASCII characters are 94
(decimal code range of 33-126). So only left to add another 2
characters more; the space (code 32), and one not-printable char
(which doesn't create any problem) by last.

I don't know. Guido has said nothing about it so far this

I may write a PEP about this. However, since yesterday I've
realised that there's a rather serious problem with part
of my proposal.
The problem is that being able to multiply matrices isn't
much use without also being able to add them and multiply
them by numbers, which obviously can't work with the
built-in sequence types, since they already have other
meanings for + and *.
However, I still think that adding an @ operator for numpy
to use is a good idea. So I'm now suggesting that the
operator be added, with the intended meaning of matrix
multiplication, but that no implementation of it be
provided in core Python.
There is a precedent for this -- the ellipsis notation was
added purely for use by Numeric and its successors, and
nothing in core Python attaches any meaning to it.

Someone writes a PEP. People talk about it. Eventually, Guido
either accepts it or rejects it (although in some cases it
is an infinitely long time before that happens:-).
If someone can email me the addresses for the following committers, I
would appreciate it:
* Greg Stein
* Jackilyn Hoxworth
* Jeff Senn
* John Benediktsson
* Mateusz Rukowicz
* Richard Emslie
* Roy Smith
And if any of the above people no longer want commit privileges or
were only given them temporarily (e.g., GSoC) that would be helpful as
I have a problem reading very large text file.
When I call the len function to get the total lines in python file.i get memory error .
I am reading the list of files in a loop ,2 files are read properly but when the third file is read ,
It gives an memory error .
