About Python Module of the Week¶
See the project home page at https://pymotw.com/3/ for updates.
Complete documentation for the standard library can be found on the Python web site at https://docs.python.org/3/library/.
As new articles are written, they are posted to my blog as well as https://pymotw.com. Updates are available by RSS from http://feeds.doughellmann.com/PyMOTW and email. Follow @pymotw or @doughellmann for updates as well.
The output from all the example programs has been generated with CPython (see below for version) and inserted into the text using cog.
$ python3 -V Python 3.6.4
Some of the features described here may not be available in earlier versions of the standard library. When in doubt, refer to the documentation for the version of Python you are using.
Translations and Other Versions¶
Roberto Pauletto has started translating the Python 3 articles into Italian.
Jaron has translated most of the articles into Chines for pandacademy.com.
