Iam on python 2.7 and linux .I need to know if we need to place the modules in a particular or it doesn't matter at all while writing the program.

For Example

import os
import shlex
import subprocess
import time
import sys
import logging
import plaftform.cluster
from util import run

def main():
 """ ---MAIN--- """

if __name__ == '__main__':

In the above example :

I am guessing may be the python modules like os , shlex etc come first and later the user defined modules like import plaftform.cluster etc

Sorry if my question sounds dump , I was running pep8 and don't see its bothered much about it

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?

I am working on drawing map from shape file in Python 3.2 basemap. But, the longitude values at the bottom axis are only shown partially. Also, all latitude values are missing.

Here is my python code.

import shapefile as sf
import sys
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pylab as plt
from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap

 map = Basemap(projection='stere', lon_0=-106.4, lat_0= 31.9, lat_ts = 31.9, 
 llcrnrlat=31.7, urcrnrlat= 31.85, 
 llcrnrlon=-106.5 , urcrnrlon= -106.1, 
 rsphere=6371200., resolution='l', area_thresh=1000)

 plt.figure(num=None, figsize=(10, 8), dpi=80, facecolor='w', edgecolor='k')

parallels = np.arange(31.7, 31.85, 0.25)

map.drawparallels(parallels, labels=[0, 0, 0, 1] , fontsize=10, labelstyle='+/-', dashes=[2, 2])

meridians = np.arange (-106.5, -106.1, 0.25)

map.drawmeridians(meridians, labels=[0, 0, 0, 1], fontsize=10, labelstyle='+/-' , dashes=[2, 2])

No matter how I changed the labels, the latitude/longitude legend values are still missing.
