Documenting Python (v2.1)

The Python language has a substantial body of documentation, much of it contributed by various authors.

Authors may use this guide, in conjunction with the template files provided with the distribution, to create or maintain whole documents or sections.
Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter (v

This document describes how to write modules in C or C++ to extend the Python interpreter with new modules. Those modules can define new functions but also new object types and their methods. The document also describes how to embed the Python interpreter in another application, for use as an extension language. Finally, it shows how to compile and link extension modules so that they can be loaded dynamically (at run time) into the interpreter, if the underlying operating system supports this feature.

Python Library Reference (v2.1)

This library reference manual documents Python's standard library, as well as many optional library modules (which may or may not be available, depending on whether the underlying platform supports them and on the configuration choices made at compile time). It also documents the standard types of the language and its built-in functions and exceptions, many of which are not or incompletely documented in the Reference Manual.
Python Macintosh Library Modules (v2.1)

This library reference manual documents Python's extensions for the Macintosh. It should be used in conjunction with the *Python Library Reference*, which documents the standard library and built-in types.
Python Reference Manual (v2.1)

This reference manual describes the syntax and "core semantics" of the language. It is terse, but attempts to be exact and complete. The semantics of non-essential built-in object types and of the built-in functions and modules are described in the *Python Library Reference*. For an informal introduction to the language, see the *Python Tutorial*. For C or C++ programmers, two additional manuals exist: *Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter* describes the high-level picture of how to write a Python extension module, and the *Python/C API Reference Manual* describes the interfaces available to C/C++ programmers in detail.
Python Tutorial (v2.1)

This tutorial introduces the reader informally to the basic concepts and features of the Python language and system. It helps to have a Python interpreter handy for hands-on experience, but all examples are self-contained, so the tutorial can be read off-line as well.
Python/C API Reference Manual (v2.1)

This manual documents the API used by C (or C++) programmers who want to write extension modules or embed Python. It is a companion to *Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter*, which describes the general principles of extension writing but does not document the API functions in detail.

The purpose of this manual is to tell you how to use the facilities of the GNU library. We have mentioned which features belong to which standards to help you identify things that are potentially non-portable to other systems. But the emphasis in this manual is not on strict portability.

cracklib2 - development tools

Header files, static libraries, documentation, and symbolic links developers using cracklib2 will need.

Fast LEXical analyzer generator Flex is a tool for generating programs that perform pattern-matching on text. It generates "scanners": programs which recognized lexical patterns in text. `flex' reads the given input files, or its standard input if no file names are given, for a description of a scanner to generate. The description is in the form of pairs of regular expressions and C code, called "rules". `flex' generates as output a C source file, `lex.yy.c', which defines a routine `yylex()'. This file is compiled and linked with the `-lfl' library to produce an executable. When the executable is run, it analyzes its input for occurrences of the regular expressions. Whenever it finds one, it executes the corresponding C code.
