Python is one of the coolest languages.
I was just playing around with it today, beginning a little program I'm writing for fun. Problem was that I'd like to be able to easily call functions based on some condition. "Easily" is the operative term.
And it *is* easy. Define the functions, place their names in a named list, and then call the list item as a function of condition. Here's a simple example:
>>> def ab() : ... return 0 ... >>> def cd() : ... return 1 ... >>> def ef(q, r) : ... return q+r ... >>> gh = [ab, cd, ef] >>> >>> gh [<function ab at 0x61270>, <function cd at 0x612b0>, <function ef at 0x612f0>] >>> >>> gh() 0 >>> >>> gh() 1 >>> >>> gh(4, 9) 13

Now that is neat. PHP does that, or something similar, you can call variables as a function just by adding () after them - I did it by accident.[URL="http://beadia.net"]Beadia[/URL - Jewelry Business Management Software]I judge you when you use poor grammar.
