I'm a technical writer at Tecplot, Inc., makers of fine data visualization software for aerospace/CFD, oil and gas exploration, and general scientific/engineering uses. Python is my Swiss Army Knife of choice. I use it to help build and validate our documentation and help, among other things. I also have some proficiency with HTML, XML, AppleScript, C#, C, and if anyone ever has a question about 6502 assembly language, I'm your man. :-)

I occasionally do Python-related blogging at http://www.engyrus.com/.

comment Is python list pass by reference to other list?
All values (even integers) are objects in Pythons, and all variables contain references to objects. Some objects can't be changed in place (integers can't) so it kinda looks like those are pass-by-value, but they're not.. Everything is pass-by-reference.

comment 'str' object has no attribute - imported file object not recognizing one of its methods?
if you enter i, dayList is a list of strings, because that's what getInfo() returns in that case.

comment map,lambda and append.. why doesn't it work?
No lambda is actually needed here; a.append is already a function that can be called to add x to a.
