The exact code:
""" A Pythonic Singleton """
def _ _new_ _(cls, *args, **kwargs):
if '_inst' not in vars(cls):
cls._inst = type._ _new_ _(cls, *args, **kwargs)
if _ _name_ _ == '_ _main_ _':
def _ _init_ _(self, s): self.s = s
def _ _str_ _(self): return self.s
s1 = SingleSpam('spam')
print id(s1), s1.spam( )
s2 = SingleSpam('eggs')
print id(s2), s2.spam( )
.w( the_mindstorm )p.
