Python 101 (part 2): If Wishes Were Pythons
Begin your tour of Python with a look at its number and stringtypes, together with examples of how they can be used in simple Pythonprograms. Along the way, you'll also learn how to build conditionalexpressions, slice and dice strings, and accept user input from the commandline
You must be tired of hearing this by now - but, since Python is based on an object-oriented framework, it's only natural that the language contain a few...well, objects. And over the course of the next few pages, I'm going to introduce you to two of the most commonly-used basic object types in Python: numbers and strings.
That's not all, though - I'll also be demonstrating how to assign values to Python variables on the basis of user input, taking a long, hard look at the different operations possible with each object type, and explaining some basic conditional statements. Hang on to your hats, kids...this is going to be one wild ride!
