SL4A - Python Library
Python has a standard library, which includes a wide variety of routines that help you code and reuse these codes easily. A Module is a Python file that has definitions of variables and a set of related routines or functions.
Some of the core Modules provided by the Python library are as follows −
Built-in Functions and Exceptions − Python imports both these modules when it starts up and makes their content available for all programs. The built-in module defines built-in functions like len, int, range, while the exceptions module defines all built-in exceptions.
Operating System Interface Modules − The OS module makes available, the functions that enables performing OS level operations through scripts.
Type Support Modules − Type support modules include string module-to implement, commonly used string operations; math module provides mathematical operations etc.
Regular Expressions − Regular Expressions are string patterns written in a specific syntax, which can be used to match or extract strings or substrings. The re module provides Regex support for Python.
Language Support Modules − The sys module gives you access to various interpreter variables, such as the module search path, and the interpreter version. The operator module provides functional equivalents to many built-in operators. The copy module allows you to copy objects. Finally, the gc module gives you more control over the garbage collector facilities in python 2.0.
