I just want to say that I am very disappointed with Guido van Rossum's latest tutorial.
I like to follow along typing in the examples and seeing how they run. I seem to catch on to things better that way.
But this tutorial's examples haven't been throughly checked because some of them are just not good.
Yes, things are free, and yes I like Python and yes, thanks to Guido for allowing the world to use his work without charge.
I will give a couple of examples:
Section 4.4 looking for prime numbers.
Section 4.7.1 default arguments.
I stopped at this point and went looking for another tutorial.
Hey, it's hard enough for a cracker-brain like me to learn this stuff without having faulty guides.
Good lord, do I ever feel better.
