In Python, as well as in PHP, by default, sorting is done respecting ASCII order and not alphabetical order.
So in Python:
my_list = ['z', 'A', 'a', 'Z'] my_list.sort() my_list # ['A', 'Z', 'a', 'z']
And in PHP:
$myList = ['z', 'A', 'a', 'Z']; sort($mylist); $myList; // ['A', 'Z', 'a', 'z']
Discovered this in Beyond the Basic Stuff with Python from Al Sweigart.
In Python we can use
a == b == c. It works. But we shouldn’t use
a != b != c.
a == b == c is actually transformed into
a == b and b == c. Which in the case of equality works the same.
a != b != c it’s transformed into
a != b and b != c. Which is not the same.
c are the same, this is
'a' != 'b' != 'a'. If we change the order, it’s then
'a' != 'a' != 'b'.
Also found in Al Sweigart’s book.
Termwind is a PHP library allowing to use Tailwind CSS ’ syntax to build TUI applications. Not tested yet, but looks interesting.
A Github repository called build-your-own-x provides a list of technologies (bots, databases, docker…) rebuilt from scratch in several languages. Quite an interesting list.
Rust has the concept of ownership and borrowing. Never read something like this elsewhere before. Sounds really interesting (and confusing for now to me).
