How to download source code as text/plain from the docs.python.org pages

+1 vote
72 views

I'd like to have the option to download the source code as text/plain from the docs.python.org pages.

For example: when I'm a docs page, such as:
http://docs.python.org/2/library/string.html

and I click the source code link I'm taken to a Mercurial page:
http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/2.7/Lib/string.py

but over there there's no way to get a clean text/plain version of the code because the line numbers are included.

A link to the text/plain version on that page would be nice!

Its already there. Click the "raw" link in the sidebar. In this case, at this moment, it sends you to
http://hg.python.org/cpython/raw-file/f4981d8eb401/Lib/string.py

I just started rewritting my project from python 2 to python 3. I noticed that there are these new parameter and return value annotations. I have docstrings everywhere in my project, but I plan to convert many of them into annotations. The question is: what kind of auto documenting system should I use for this? Previously I have used Sphinx. Is it okay to use that for python 3 source code? Is there a better alternative?

I have started looking into distutils because I need to write an extension module in C (for performance reasons) and distutils seems to be the most straight-forward way.

I have had success building a C file into a Python extension module using "python setup.py build" but I am wondering what the recommended way for using that module during development is. While writing Python code I am used to just run the code from the source directory. But the built extension modules .so of course does not just end up on sys.path magically.

So how do I run my code so it will find the built extension module? Do I pass the output directory on the command line manually or is there some other solution? I would like to still be able to run the code from the source directory as I am using PyCharm to edit and debug the code.

I am building a cherrypy app that is testing as vulnerable to the heartbleed exploit.

The app is running on the 64 bit 3.3.5 Windows distribution of python. An updated version of 64 bit Python 3.3.x for Windows or an updated pyopenssl? I am kind of surprised the distribution on python.org hasen't been updated.

I would like to download a file. If the connection is OK, I can download the file with:

import urllib.request
urllib.request.urlretrieve(remote_file, local_file)

Sometimes when I am connected on week wireless (not mine) network I get WinError 10054 exception (windows 7). When it happens, I would like to resume download instead of doing everything from very beginning.

How to do that? I read about Range header and chunks, but this server doesn't have any headers.
What options do I have with this particular file?
