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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))

Source code: f1 Module: Y105
More options with modules and functions

1. If you want to import something into a different namespace to the
one implied by the name of the .py file, you can import as

2. You can call a function with a series of name=value parameters -
see taxcalc.py for how they are picked up

import taxcalcs as tc

amount = float(input("How much did you spend? "))
net = tc.getnet(amount,25,country="Denmark",comment="demo",
print("That was",net,"for the merchant (Denmark)")
net = tc.getnet(amount,country="Slovenia",taxrate=20,
print("That was",net,"for the merchant (Slovenia)")


""" Sample output:

WomanWithCat:y105 grahamellis$ python3 f1
How much did you spend? 120
GETNET: comment - demo
GETNET: type - VAT
GETNET: another - <function gettax at 0x101833d90>
GETNET: country - Denmark
That was 96.0 for the merchant (Denmark)
GETNET: type - VAT
GETNET: year - 2018
GETNET: country - Slovenia
That was 100.0 for the merchant (Slovenia)
