I am completely new at python, but not new to programming or
scripting. I have a couple of years of LUA scripting experience,
about a year of C++ classes, and used to be very efficient at c-shell
scripting in unix.
My question for you guys:
1) How do I get Started?
2) Recommend any specific Books?
3) Any online tutors/ forums that would benefit a newbie
4) Any online classes that teach python? I have taken online c++
courses, and found them helpful. I was hoping to find something for
My main objective is to write scripts for the following type of
File management, file copies/syncs/ compares
Text manipulation - like parsing text files to replace or augment
Integration into current applications to write redundant routines and
maybe some day plugins
I am not even sure what else, but I do know that every time i think
of something that we need at work, other people say, "That would be a
good task for a python script" and I would eventually like to be
able to do something about that.
