Meet another gem in the standard library:
functools, which contains tools for functional-style programming.
In this Bite you will play with its useful
partial()function which -as per PEP 309- lets you construct variants of existing functions that have some of the parameters filled in.
The PEP also shows a small but realistic example:import functools def log (message, subsystem): "Write the contents of 'message' to the specified subsystem." print '%s: %s' % (subsystem, message) ... server_log = functools.partial(log, subsystem='server') server_log('Unable to open socket')
In this Bite you will apply this concept to the
roundbuiltin:>>> round(10.42342, 2) 10.42
partials to add the default behavior of rounding to 0 and 4 places respectively. See the template code below ...
Good luck and keep calm and code in Python!
