filling in with a default value if it is not long enough.
If the input sequence is longer than n, raises ValueError.
Details, details: This returns a new list; it does not extend the original sequence. The new list contains the values of the original sequence, not copies.
This is useful in conjunction with the special
attribute that Python provides for modules, so modules can load associated
If stdin is a terminal, prompt for a new password, and confirm (if
confirm is true) by asking again to make sure the user typed
the same thing, as keystrokes will not be echoed.
If stdin is not a terminal, and
forceTTY is not true, read
in a line and use it as the password, less the trailing newline, if any.
forceTTY is true, attempt to open a tty and prompt for the
password using it. Raise a RuntimeError if this is not possible.

If not found, return None
Underlying platform support require to manipulate groups is missing.
If the C extension is present, we're calling it, which in turn calls initgroups(3).
If not, this is done by reading the group database /etc/group and using
all groups of which
uid is a member. The additional group
primaryGid is also added to the list.
If the given user is a member of more than
arbitrary groups will be silently discarded to bring the number below that
|Parameters||uid||The UID for which to look up group information. (type: |
|primaryGid||If provided, an additional GID to include when setting the groups. (type: |
|Parameters||uid||the UID (or EUID) to switch the current process to. This parameter will be
ignored if the value is |
|gid||the GID (or EGID) to switch the current process to. This parameter will be
ignored if the value is |
|euid||if True, set only effective user-id rather than real user-id. (This option
has no effect unless the process is running as root, in which case it means
not to shed all privileges, retaining the option to regain privileges in
cases such as spawning processes. Use with caution.) (type: |
This is mostly necessary in Python 2.4 which implements
to sometimes return a negative value. Python 2.3 shares this behavior, but
also implements hex and the %x format specifier to represent negative
values as though they were positive ones, obscuring the behavior of
Python 2.5's implementation of
always returns positive values.

g's instance dictionary with
To use this function safely you must use the return value. In Python
will create a new function. In later versions of Python,
will be mutated and returned.
|Returns||A function that has |
|Parameters||mname||The name to convert to a label. This must be a string which could be used
as a Python identifier. Strings which do not take this form will result in
unpredictable behavior. (type: |
