Dive into Python on the web is a good resource for those with some programming experience. And chapter 5 goes into command line arguments some.
Some real books I also like: Python in the Nutshell Python Cookbook Programming in PythonAll those real books are on BookShare, but be careful of the indentation as it is sometimes off.

Hi, I have been teaching myself python and have a few questions:1. Does anyone know of a good book on classes, the try statement and the more advanced things in python?2. What is the best way of handling command line arguments? So far I have been doing: import sys for i in sys.argv[1:]: if i == "-b": do something elif i == "whatever": do something else. Sorry if my indenting is wrong, no braille here.But just using a loop to go through the argvs, check what it is and do a certain thing.Is there a cleaner/easier way than this?3. Where is the best place to learn apis such as gtk and any I may need to know for linux programming and general python stuff? 4. Does anyone know of a book that could teach me the more advanced things as wells as review the basics in python? (I have a reasonable understanding of python...)Any help is greatly appreciated.
