Following a discussion with an associate at work about various ways to
build strings from variables in python, I'd like to hear your opinions
and preferred methods. The methods we discussed are:
1. some_string = "cd %s ; %s %d %s %s" % ( working_dir, ssh_cmd,
some_count, some_param1, some_param2)
2. import string
template = string.Template("cd $dir ; $cmd $count $param1
some_string = template.substitute(dict(dir=working_dir,
here you can use a couple of nice tricks by using class.__dict__ and
globals() \ locals() dictionaries.
3. some_string = "cd "+working_dir+" ; "+ssh_cmd+ "
"+str(some_count)+" "+some_param1+" "+some_param2
(all these are supposed to produce the same strings)
Which methods do you know of \ prefer \ think is better because...?
I will appreciate any opinions about the matter.
