Chapter 19. Web Programming > Related Modules

19.8. Related Modules

In Table 19-7, we present a list of modules which you may find useful for Web and Internet development.

  • The parsing modules deal with recognizing documents in specific formats.

  • You can write POP- or IMAP-compliant mail clients using the corresponding protocol modules.

  • Python has plenty of modules to support most kinds of binary file encoding for e-mail and other MIME-oriented applications.

  • You can create clients for common Internet protocols like HTTP, FTP, Telnet, and NNTP with the appropriate modules. Be aware that urllib provides a high-level interface to protocols supported by your browser such as HTTP and FTP, so use of the lower-level protocol modules only makes sense when you cannot get all you want from urllib.

  • Finally, we have the HTMLgen external module and the commercial Zope (Z Object Publishing Environment) system by Digital Creations. We introduced the HTMLgen module briefly at the end of Section 19.5. It definitely comes in handy when you need to generate more complex HTML documents via CGI scripts.
