[September 2009] I'm pleased to announce the release of the 4th Edition of the book Python Pocket Reference.
This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to cover both Python 3.1 and 2.6, and fully present features that appear in each of these two Python lines. As such, this edition is designed for people using Python 2.X, people using Python 3.X, and people who need to translate between the two.
As for its prior editions, this book is intended to serve as a quick reference companion to other books like Learning Python. Its new edition's dual-version coverage also provides an ideal resource for programmers migrating to Python 3.X, now or in the future.
This book is available from bookstores and online outlets. O'Reilly's page listed below also offers it in a variety of searchable electronic forms -- PDF, .epub, Kindle-compatible .mobi, and the Safari online catalog.
This book is a reference-only supplement for other Python books, including the fundamentals tutorial text Learning Python, which was similarly updated for the latest versions of both Python 3.X and 2.X. Because it covers both Python 2.X and 3.X, this book also applies to both the prior and current editions of the applications-focused book Programming Python.
