Where there is a Will

Will McGugan's Blog

I am a freelance software engineer living in Glasgow Leicester.

I post mostly about tech (particularly Python) and photography.

Background: A code monkey

My sister visited to day and it gave me the opportunity to go out in Chester and take a few photos with my digital camera. Im not going to bore you with tourist snaps, I'm going to bore you with pretentious arty photos.

I recently mastered behind the back throws. What? You don't believe me?! Well screw you buddy, I have video evidence.

My cactus is in bloom. That's all I have to say about that.

Netstring.py’ is a Python module to encode / decode netstrings. A netstring is a simple protocol for encoding arbitrary strings in a file or datastream. They have the major advantage over the traditional zero terminated strings in that the reader knows the size of the string up front and does not have to examine the data a byte at the time.

There is no documentation for this module other than the docstrings, but hopefuly that should cover it. For more information on the netstring protocol see the official netstring protocol document.
