For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Quick and easy - showing Python data hander output via a browser
From today's intermediate Python course - a new example of how to very quickly present the results of running an application on the web - [here]
The objective was to provide an almost-trivial way of letting results be viewed via a remote browser. No forms, no validation needed, no formatting of the plain text output. I used the oldfashioned common gateway interface.
My script starts:
print "Content-type: text/html\n"
And that's to tell the Apache httpd web server that the script is written in Python, and that the output is HTML.
You also need to enable CGI in your httpd.conf file (or a file it includes) and set the file to be executable.
In order to have the code that normally prints the results to file / stdout in a fixed width font, you'll want to put it within a preformatted style, or <pre> tag pair.
print "<pre>" (written 2013-05-15, updated 2013-05-18)
