Oh those crazy Germans! Well, at least they got the right phylum.

Python is a chafing and slow scripting language, used only by mathematicians not in-the-know, and skript kiddies for writing blog-chafing scripts. Also good for SSH.

Python is the invoker of a fuckload of butthurt. Nobody in the whole fucking world uses Python anymore except lolcats and the occasional Ron Paul. Python has been known for it's complicated coding and batshit crazy errors that, when translated from moonspeak to English says something about how you can't program because of a "firewall" problem or a "network ear fuck." Those problems usually encourage you to just not fight it and play along because upon further investigation, you'll be mind-fucked with frustration the same way you got eye-fucked watching old guys having an orgy. Real h4x0rs won't be caught dead using Python, because it's just a toy teaching language that Guido put together because he couldn't understand Perl.

Python is an object oriented, interpreted language. It is unique in that it requires a user to indent in place of using curly brackets ({). It is used (along with PHP and VB) for many tools, since it is easy to use and has many features.

Note: that most *nix distributions come with Python by default. Did you click this page cause you were expecting something completely different?

Contents

Whitespace

For some reason, the developers of Python took it upon themselves to make the language whitespace dependent, meaning that the way the source looks changes the way the script preforms. This is the old way of doing things. This is proof that Python's inventors were to dumb to use a real programming language. Or they just think you are too retarded to indent your code.

Tutorial

Below applies to Python 2.7 or lower, Python 3 is a good bit different. So different, the official online references actually have to be used and skiddie tutorials no longer work.

Basics

Basic python syntax

Hello World!

Python 2.7.5

>>> print "HELLO WORLD!"
HELLO WORLD!

Python 3.3.2

 >>> print "HELLO WORLD!"
   File "<stdin>", line 1
     print "HELLO WORLD!"
                        ^
 SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Variables

Variable names DO NOT need to begin with a special character, unlike PHP or Perl. Variable names CAN, however, be any combination, as long as the word isn't reserved (Ex: and, or, print), of letters and numbers.


>>> #Numbers
>>> a = 1 #Declare A as 1
>>> b = a+5 #b becomes 6, while a remains 1
>>> a += 5 #a is overwritten, and becomes 6
>>> c = b = a #c and b are overwritten and become 6
>>> #Strings
>>> a = "Hello "
>>> b = "There"
>>> c = a+b #JOIN STRINGS
>>> a = "Blue Yellow Green Red".split(" ") #Split the string at every " "
>>> a #Output 'a' to the screen, same as print or print()
['Blue', 'Yellow', 'Green', 'Red'] #List object, another type of variable
>>> .join(a) #Join all the list objects as one
'BlueYellowGreenRed'
>>> a = 'Blue Green Yellow Red'[0:4] #This returns the sub-string 'Blue'
>>> a = 'Blue Green Yellow Red'[5:] #This returns the sub-string 'Green Yellow Red'
>>> a = 'a = 'Blue Green Yellow Red'[::2] #This returns the sub-string Bu re elwRd'
>>> #Float 
>>> a = 88.2
>>> b = 88
>>> print (a/25)
3.528
>>> (print b/25)
3
>>> #Other types
>>> a = (" ", 355, 256.7, ["Hello", "World"])
>>> type(a)
<type 'tuple'>
>>> a = {"Hello":"World", "Key":"Value"}
>>> type(a)
<type 'dict'>
>>> a = "Anhero"
>>> del a #Its a good idea, if you're making a 'hidden' script, to delete variables after you use them...

Statements

Comparison

< Less than
> Greater than
== Equal to
!= Not equal
=== Identical
!== Not identical
<= Less than or equal to
>= Greater than or equal to
If
>>> a = 1
>>> b = 2
>>> if a != b:
	print ("No!")
 
 	
No!
>>> a = 1
>>> b = 1
>>> if a == b:
	print ("Yes!")

	
Yes!
>>> a = 1
>>> b = 5
>>> if (a == b-len("....")/1) and "a" == "a" or "b" == "b":
	print ("Yes!")

 	
Yes!

Loops

While
>>> a = 1
>>> while a < 5: #Note, replacing '<' with '<=' allows it to reach 5, instead of stopping at 4
	print (a)
	a += 1


1
2
3
4
>>> a = False
>>> while a == False:
	print ("False")
	a = True

	
False
For
>>> for x in range(0, 10):
	print (x)

	
0
1
2
3
4
5
6

>>> for x in ['Hello', 'world', 'this', 'is', 'a', 'list']:

list

#Reverse loop over an array
>>> for x in ['Hello', 'world', 'this', 'is', 'a', 'list'][::-1]:
	print (x)

Classes

Since python is object oriented, you can define classes: The Keyword for defining classes is "class," and if you want to derive your class from another one, put it into brackets after the class name. The definition is closed by the notorious colon, followed by the notorious indented block. Notable about Python is, that every datatype is a class, even the simple ones.

Self reference, Member access

The self reference of a python class is, plain and simple "self." Class members can be accessed with the class/object name followed by a dot and the member name:

Myclass.myMember

Methods

Methods are defined like functions, just with the difference that their first parameter is "self"

Constructor/Destructor

Constructors in python classes are made by defining a method with the name '__init__' (Two underscores at the beginning and two underscores at the end) Destructors are alike, just '__del__' instead of '__init__'. Since Python has automatic memory management and a garbage collector, it cannot be assured that the destructor is called instantly at the classes' end of life. So don't rely on code you put in a destructor too heavily, or even better try to avoid using one.


class TheGame():
    def __init__(self):
        self.toPrint = 'You just lost it!'
        print (self.toPrint)
    def printLulz(self):
        print ("LULZ")
    def __del__(self):
        print ('If this method gets called, you won THE GAME!')

Objects

Creating an object of a Python class works as in most object oriented languages:

myObject = TheGame()

myObject is now an instance of TheGame() so myObject can be used to call any of TheGame()'s functions. Example:

myObject.printLulz()

The above will print "LULZ" into the interpreter.

Inheritance

Inheritance is just what it sounds like. It's when a class inherits all the methods of a "father" class.

class Inherit(TheGame):
    def __init__(self):
        pass
Inherit().printLulz()

The above code will print out "LULZ" into the interpreter because it inherits the method printLulz() from the class TheGame().

Python Trolling Techniques

#Want to troll your friends? Put one (or both) of the lines below somewhere in their code where they won't expect it.
True = False
False = 1==1

#Test it:
>>> print True
False
>>> print False
True
>>> if not True:
        print "WTF?!"
WTF?!

#Enjoy confusion!

Unladen Swallow

Apparently some tenacious employees at Google (who use Python for fucking EVERYTHING) have taken it upon themselves to try to optimize Python's completely fucked structure. All that can be said is Allah help those poor unfortunate bastards. Read about their failure-iffic exploits here. Other people claim to be awesome Python programmers but obviously aren't.

Those employees have utterly failed in their goal to optimize the structure and have completely abandoned this hopeless endeavor in favor of more appealing projects. Even Google saw how fucked they were and took their funding away from them before they gave up.

Disambiguation

Do not confuse this with Monty Python or the snake of the same name. Although, might be worth noting that Python was named after "Monty Pythons Flying Circus", No shit. Not to mention the source code comments are filled with MP references and quotes. Dem damn Brits ruin everything, it would be a a 10 times cooler language if it was named after a fucking snake. Really.
