News flash for the slow to catch on

While posting on The Scripts Developer's Network python forum, someone pointed out to me that string.atoi (and atof) have been deprecated ( I hope I'm never deprecated, it sounds painful) and the preferred methods are the built-in functions int() and float(). I'm not sure when it happened because I apparently didn't get the memo, but especially if you have moved up to Vr 3.2 and Python 2.5, it is probably something to take note of.

No comments:

For anyone interested in trying VrPython for the first time or if you are early in the game, I suggest going to the earliest posts and working forward. I use VrPython every day for many wonderful things, needless to say it will change and could potentially damage a file. Any risk associated with using VrPython or any code or scripts mentioned here lies solely with the end user.

The "Personal VrPython page" in the link section will contain many code examples and an organized table of contents to this blog in a fairly un-attractive (for now) form.
