Geez, what's with that. There are any number of "real" books out on python,
I don't hear folks bitching. I think it's wonderful that we have such a good
reference. I mean, look at numarray 8) I spent the money for your book and
it didn't hurt a bit and was well worth the cost. Anyone who has tried to
write extensive documentation on a big project knows how much work it takes,
it isn't easy. Thanks for taking the time and sweat to do so.
