help on log

This message has popped up quite a few times on c.l.p. and on the Tutor 
list, under two different email addresses even.

If you are really new to any kind of programming, I think this script 
is a little bit advanced.  For instance, I see that you're using the 
regular expression module, but I'm not sure that you understand how to 
use it.  It looks like you're trying to compile a regular expression 
for the text that you want generated by the script, but regular 
expressions help you search for text in an already-existing file.  
Also, you're using the string module to find a "LayerUp" string, but I 
don't see that string anywhere in your log -- so is this really even 
necessary?  (Even if it's necessary to your code, it could be omitted 
from your post.)

Also, few people have the time to sit down and troubleshoot an entire 
script, even a small one like this.  If you knew exactly what your 
problem was, you could isolate the problem from the rest of the script 
and then just ask that question.  Once it's solved, you can move on to 
the next problem.  This mailing list gets so much traffic that I end up 
deleting a lot of the messages without reading them, even the short 
ones.  Long ones which vaguely ask for help and then post a lot of code 
go right to my Trash folder.

My advice to you is that you -not- tackle an entire script like this 
right off the bat.  Fire up your interactive Python interpreter.  
Import the regular expression and string modules.  Open up a file 
handle to your ppp.log file.  Then start playing with the various 
features of the regular expression and string modules, and see what you 
can do interactively.  When you can get something to look good, write 
down what you did.  When you have a straightforward question, go ahead 
and ask it here or on the Tutor list.

I'm not trying to sound mean, but you will find this a lot easier if 
you break it down into smaller steps.  The interactive Python 
interpreter is the ultimate tool for doing this.

PS: don't use HTML-formatted or Rich Text-formatted email, on some mail 
clients (such as mine) it makes your text render too small to read.  
That only exacerbates your problem.
