Anybody know of work done along the lines of optimizing Python code ? Has
anybody done benchmarks on different coding styles ? Examples of questions
Is it faster to split a string into a tuple with individual elements
>>> a= "as the end"
>>>(x,y,z) = string.split(a," ")
where x = 'as', y = 'the' and z='end'
or as a list
>>>q = string.split(a," " )
where following accesses would entail q='as' etc.
Is is faster to index through a list
>>>for i in range(4):
>>>for x in a:
The answer (as I have found) out is the second. I am not looking for
specific answers about these questions but they represent the type of
information I seek. I am looking in general to produce quick code and am
looking for coding techniques that are best utilize the language.
