Hi,
python really looks a great language.

I wish C++ would have some of them !

Here the questions

1)
I preferred to use the newsgroup but the server
comp.lang.python / c.l.python ( as it appears with Mozilla ) looks down !
Am I doing something worng or the link from the python.org pages
http://www.python.org/community/lists.html
does not work ?


2)
Is there a place where there are very small code snippets so a person
can quicly use and learn Python ?

3)
Under http://py.vaults.ca
I found code under GPL license so I don't know if I can use some lines
of code extracted from code I've found over there, for other open source
code.

Marcello

For many examples take a look at:

Maybe a problem with the news server you use?
Try news.individual.net (it requires free registration but is very good)

You should read the USENET FAQs to learn the difference between a
newsgroup and a server. In short: comp.lang.python is a newsgroup. It
is not a server, it's just a bunch of articles that are passed around
between news servers. Your ISP probably has a news server that carries
comp.lang.python.

Only for other GPL code; once you use any GPL code in your project, it
must be released under GPL. Not to start that flamewar again, but
that's why the GPL is called a virus, and why you should avoid touching
code that is only released under the GPL. True open source licenses
like BSD, MIT, Apache, and Python's own license allow code to be reused
for any purpose. At most you might have to acknowledge credit, which
decent people should do anyway.
