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 How do I add a retry option to a function in Python?
Actually the user's code won't even run because of this. (It doesn't clobber the built-in; pass is a keyword.) Good catch.

comment Why import builtins if you never redefine any built-in functions?
Having those names in the module namespace will 1. be very slightly more performant than accessing them in as built-ins, and 2. not be affected by any later-imported modules' redefinitions of built-ins. Why they did it, I can't say; people just liked it better that way...

No, I did not. I'm showing the repr() of a string. OP has already seen the repr() of a tuple!
