These modules are not on the standard module search path;
but are available in the directory lib-old/ installed under
$prefix/lib/python1.5/. To use any of these modules, add that directory to sys.path,
possibly using $PYTHONPATH.
- -- New dir() function (the standard dir() is
now just as good)
- -- alternate approach to packages
- -- Extract function name or line number from a function
code object (these are now accessible as attributes:
- -- Print python code that reconstructs a variable
- -- text formatting abstractions (too slow)
- -- helper for fmt.py
- -- wrapper around FCNTL file locking (use
fcntl.lockf()/flock() intead; see fcntl)
- -- Polynomials
- -- Print tracebacks, with a dump of local variables (use
pdb.pm() or traceback instead)
- -- Measure time intervals to high resolution (use
time.clock() instead). (This is an extension module.)
- -- Useful functions that don't fit elsewhere.
- -- A primitive windowing debugger based on STDWIN.
- -- Recognize sound files; use sndhdr instead.
- -- Compute properties of mathematical "fields"
The following modules are obsolete, but are likely re-surface as tools
- -- find files matching pattern in directory tree
- -- grep
- -- create a self-unpacking Unix shell archive
The following modules were documented in previous versions of this
manual, but are now considered obsolete. The source for the
documentation is still available as part of the documentation source
- -- Import modules in ``packages.'' Basic package support is now
- -- Old interface to the random number generator.
- -- Algorithm for collapsing names which sound similar to a shared
key. (This is an extension module.)
