    Two Python mini-languages: regular expressions, and string formatting.

    As a plus an intro to Tkinter, the built-in Python GUI. Tkinter is a binding to Tk, one half of the Tcl/Tk language, developed over the last 25 years.

Table of Contents

This session adds to what was learnt from Session 2: Syntax and Constructs, and goes on to cover some further language constructs. The sessions now broadly follow the standard tutorial, but in a very condensed way. You are very much advised to refer to the tutorial for a fuller coverage of the language; and indeed, to the full language reference for complete coverage. Some of the examples shown here are taken from the tutorial.
