I am a new subscriber and I am just learning about Python. I have a MSc
in Mathematical Computer Science and very little experience in
programming. Lately I have wanted to do some database structures that
would not be easy or even possible with MsAccess and so I started looking
I was recommended to Python as an easy language to learn and an efficient
language to program in. I am wondering if anyone knows how to command
the Jet DataBase engine of Microsoft with Python scripts?
More directly, I am looking for some amplification of the Tutorial in the
form of some simple scripts that will make windows parse ascii texts in
various ways. In particular, I would like to be able to scan several
files and combine them at will or take several lines from one and put it
in another, etc. Common CShell stuff. I am running Windows 98 on a 400
MHz Pentium 2 with 60 Mb Ram.
I guess, before I get too deep into this kind of a problem, I need to get
some practice doing the utmost simple API calls.
I would appreciate any help anyone can give.
