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 Why are my indexed outputs printing vertically in Python?
Well, then you need to create a list and put stuff in there... not sure why you are printing them to begin with! Give that a shot and if you have trouble with it, post a new question asking about that rather than about your print issue.

comment Why are my indexed outputs printing vertically in Python?
OK... well, what do you mean by "grab"? Store them in a list, so you can then print it later?

key=lambda x: -int(x[2]) will do it without needing reverse=True.

comment Python os.walk topdown true with regular expression
According to the documentation, it should only work with topdown=True. From TFM: "Modifying dirnames when topdown is False is ineffective, because in bottom-up mode the directories in dirnames are generated before dirpath itself is generated."
