Just out of curiousity, what other programming languages do you know?  I
ask because the approach currently taken in the tutorial seems appropriate
for people who already know how to program (and that's made obvious by the
opening paragraph in the introduction).  However, if you have no
programming experience, or all you know is JavaScript or perhaps Visual
Basic, then I can see how you might need more.


PS:  Your posting doesn't seem to match the base note with respect to the
various author fields.  It's ok to hide real email addresses, etc., but it
would be useful if there were some consistent indicator that the two posts
were written by the same person, assuming that's the case.  It could just
be a signature line, even if the sig is just "A Python Novice".
