This is going to be dead handy, even for those of us who have the dead-tree edition. The latter is best for reading on the tube. Or toilet. (Sorry.) But I can't cart all my books everywhere I go. I can carry a CD easily. I have an 'essentials' CD, containing everything I wouldn't want to do without - utilities, Python, Java, IDEs, packages, tools & documentation. The Standard Python Library is going on that.
With luck, putting the electronic version online might boost sales of the dead-tree version, too. It worked for Bruce Eckel.Posted to Python by Simon Brunning at March 13, 2003 05:03 PM
