Reading Daily Python today I found several interesting links.
This pair could be useful for windows support improvements.
* Copy huge files on Windows avoiding system cache misbehaviour
This recipe uses pywin32 in order to copy files making use of
the win32file.FILE_FLAG_SEQUENTIAL_SCAN, which makes much more
efficient use of the system cache (only a few megabytes are
consumed instead of caching the whole file).
* Windows shortcuts import hook
This simple import hook can resolve Windows shortcuts refering
to directories. This allows Windows users to simulate UNIX
directory structures which contain symlinks.
Pair of announces:
* paramiko 1.6
I help a little to Robey to test paramiko on Windows and Cygwin,
so in this new version he fix some specific problems. For more
details ask him directly.
* Mercurial on PyPI
As continuation of John's threads about Public Impressions
I want to mention that Mercurial has their own entry on PyPI.
Why bzr does not have?
