two wee python lifesavers

filed under the "notes to self" category... if I forget these tips I'll googling for them... so let's put them on my random blog for now.
  • This should be enabled by default in the standard python shell.

  • 'enscript' is a must have for printing code... and from the man page, is this suggestion from the developer himself - flags for printing code: gaudy header, two columns, landscape, code highlighting, 2-up printing.
    ~$enscript -G2rE -U2

    if you have a long script, check it out... it's beautiful.

openMolar - it's not a comic book reader.

I was a guest on the linux link tech show last night, I was my usual incoherent babbling self, but I had a great time.

If anyone is interested in seeing just how badly I write code, please download,play with, and scrutinise the openMolar software.
