I know this is a illusive question, but frustration set in. I pruchase
the book "Programming Python"
by  Mark Lutz and I'm completely disappointed with what I've read so
far. Starting on page 82,
he uses an example that calls for a second computer system with some
files on it that will be
download with his python script Why in the world use such an example to
teach the language?
How am I going to know if my script works or not? To make matters worse
this  example is used
for the next several chapters. Well, I said my peace, now back to
learning Python.
