Python ScriptsYou find mostly two kinds of things here: little utility scripts and cgi-programs.
Compares the contents of two directories. It outputs four lists:
files only in directory A, files only in directory B, files in both
directories where the one in directory A is newer, and files in both
directories where the one in directory B is newer.
comparedirs.py dir1 dir2
For writing scripts to back up directories.
Copies file to the backup directory only when
needed (only updates backup directory.
Writes a log telling you exactly which
files were copied and which were skipped.
I've zipped it up in copytree.zip
with a sample copy job.
single-spaces input in which every other line is an unwanted carriage
return. Useful for when you receive a text document that has become
through conversion between operating systems.

questionnaire: I wrote a framework for online questionnaires with
three kinds of widgets: single line text field, multiline text field,
and scale from 1 to 9. The files in questionnaire.zip contains Questionnaire.py, which is the HTML widget-writing code, and a couple of little debugging files. The file course-evals.py
is a sample of a real questionnaire: with obligatory and optional
fields, a preview before submission, and anonymous submission by
e-mail. The data for each state in the program is stored in hidden
fields in the HTML, and as such, no session data needs to be stored on
the server. You may see the course-evals.py program running here.
I have an event calendar program where events of different
categories are stored in separate python modules and then are
integrated and displayed in a large on-line event list. I will
eventually get the sources for this program up for your perusal. You
may see the scripts in action here.
I have an elaborate on-line address book program
which stores data in a flat-file database.
I'll eventually get the code for this up as well.
