Pexpect -- An Expect-like module in pure Python

I loved Expect, but I hated TCL, so I wrote this 100% pure Python module that does the same thing.

.vimrc for Python

I like VIM. This is how I set my .vimrc file. I never liked the built-in indent folding for Python because it folds EVERYTHING. For code folding I like things to be pretty flat -- I just want to see class names and method names. I don't need every single nested loop folded many levels deep... In this .vimrc see the section on "folding using /search/ pattern". This maps the normal mode key sequence, 'zff' to set the search pattern to find all class and method names. This also maps '\z' to refold every search pattern. The neat thing is that this pattern also works on PHP code! The '\z' mapping is also handy for editing other documents.

This will test for primality with a regular expression. No, I'm serious...

    import re
    def is_prime (num):
        return re.match(r"^1?$|^(11+?)\1+$",'1'*num) is None
