[Baypiggies] Interesting video regarding Python porting/debugging

I just ran across this video by a guy who wrote some automation for  
porting python 2 to python 3 for the libraries written in C. It also  
shows some interesting debugging examples:


here's an excerpt from the blurb on this page:

SystemTap includes its own scripting language, and David Malcolm used  
this capability to develop a Python-based “top” function, to show  
Python activity across the entire running system. But beyond that, he  
also created an additional script that developers can use to see their  
applications calling and returning from individual Python functions.  
The combination of these tools in Fedora 13 can give developers  
immediate insight not only into their program’s flow, but also into  
how their application spends its time, and where bottlenecks might be  

Hope you find this as interesting as I did.

Disclaimer. I work for Red Hat which sponsors Fedora.
