Fix Python – Can you list the keyword arguments a function receives?

I have a dict, which I need to pass key/values as keyword arguments.. For example..
d_args = {‘kw1’: ‘value1’, ‘kw2’: ‘value2’}

This works fine, but if there are values in the d_args dict that are not accepted by the example function, it obviously dies.. Say, if the example function is defined as def example(kw2):
This is a prob….

Fix Python – In Python, can I call the main() of an imported module?

In Python I have a module where I define a few functions and a main(), which takes a few command line arguments.
I usually call this main() from a bash script. Now, I would like to put everything into a small package, so I thought that maybe I could turn my simple bash script into a Python script and put it in the package.
So, how do ….

Fix Python – How to pass arguments to a Button command in Tkinter?

Suppose I have the following Button made with Tkinter in Python:
import Tkinter as Tk
win = Tk.Toplevel()
frame = Tk.Frame(master=win).grid(row=1, column=1)
button = Tk.Button(master=frame, text=’press’, command=action)

The method action is called when I press the button, but what if I wanted to pass some arguments to the method action?
I have tr….

Fix Python – How do I define a function with optional arguments?

I have a Python function which takes several arguments. Some of these arguments could be omitted in some scenarios.
def some_function (self, a, b, c, d = None, e = None, f = None, g = None, h = None):

The arguments d through h are strings which each have different meanings. It is important that I can choose which optional parameters to ….

Fix Python – Which exception should I raise on bad/illegal argument combinations in Python?

I was wondering about the best practices for indicating invalid argument combinations in Python. I’ve come across a few situations where you have a function like so:
def import_to_orm(name, save=False, recurse=False):
:param name: Name of some external entity to import.
:param save: Save the ORM object before returning.
:param ….

[Fixed] *args calling plt.plot() for each optional argument

I’m having some trouble with passing an arbitrary number of arguments to plt.plot(). For each argument I try to pass via *args my function calls plt.plot() two times creating duplicates for each optional argument. The read_n_plot function is meant to read some datafile, spit out the data as lists, and create a plot of said data. If I want to create a plot of an XRD standard for a crystal I want to make it easily distinguishable from whatever experimental data I’m comparing it with.
From what I understand *args is a tuple containing all the arguments passed to my function. But I can’t seem to figure out how to pass everything inside *args as is, and not calling plt.plot(arg1) -> plt.plot(arg2) -> etc
Got any hints I could try?
Here is my code:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

#def read_n_plot(datafile, color, thickness, style = ‘-‘, *args):
def read_n_plot(datafile, *args, **kwargs):
vinkel = []
intensitet = []
with open(datafile, encoding=’utf8′, errors=’ignore’) as f:
if datafile.endswith(‘.int’):
next(f); next(f)
lines = f.readlines()
for line in lines:
if line and line[0].isalpha():
data = line.split()
theta, counts = float(data[0]), float(data[1])
intensitet_norm = [i/max(intensitet) for i in intensitet]
plt.plot(vinkel, intensitet_norm, label = datafile, *args, **kwargs)
return vinkel, intensitet_norm

read_n_plot(‘NaCl_data.xy’, ‘k’, ‘–‘, lw = 1.0)
plt.xlim(0, 65)
plt.ylabel(‘Intensitet (a.u.)’)

Example below uses standard powder XRD data for NaCl. It seems the ‘–‘ argument for linestyle didn’t get through at all. The legend says there are two plots.
