I tried this way but it doesnt work

push @menu,[" $_->{title} - $_->{topic}", "Icon2", "Execute('$_->{url}')"];

push @menu,[" $_->{title} - $_->{topic}", "SetIcon(Icon2)", "Execute('$_->{url}')"];

Can anyone help with that?

Using help in interactive window of PythonWin

Hello,
I've installed 2.5.5.7 CE, and issued hh -decompile . ActivePython25.chm command in Doc folder of my Python install path. Now help('print') works in interactive shell (cmd.exe based), but still fails in the interactive window of PythonWin. What do I have to set so that it works in there too?

thread::send to main thread fails?

Hi all,

I'am starting with threads, after experimenting I came across a few lines which crash/deadlock/whatever and I don't know why:

## prepare:
> package re Thread
2.6.7
> set tid [thread::create {thread::wait}]
tid00001940

## this command works fine as expected:
> thread::send [thread::id] {puts hello}
hello

## but this command fails - where in principle it should be the same as the one above?
> thread::send $tid [list thread::send [thread::id] {puts hello}]

thx

PerlEZ in version 5.12.2?

Hi all,
Thanks in advance for your help.

It seems strange, but I couldn't find the answer to the question-

Is PerlEZ still supported in ActivePerl 5.12.2 ?

I have the 32 bit version of perl installed on a 64 bit machine, and I can't get PerlEZ to work (although I do see the PerlEZ files in the appropriate directories, I get a "File not found" error). I'm trying to call PerlEZ from Microsoft Access 2010 64bit edition.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Stav

Expect no longer available in ActiveTcl?

I need to write a small utility using Expect to control a remote telnet session. I would have preferred using Perl as the rest of the project is in that language, but that seems like a dead end on Windows with ActivePerl.

I then turned to ActiveTcl and was encouraged this page: http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/expect

However, the package cannot be found when I try the recommended command: "teacup install Expect".

Where can I get a working 'expect' solution under Windows?

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Import and export files to and from MS Access using python

I'm able to run sql queries within MS Access using python. I can't figure out how to simply import and export tables to and from MS Access using python. The work flow looks like this:
1. connect to the database
2. import a csv or dbf file to the database
3. run some queries
4. export the results

Sounds simple enough. Please help.
