More iterator tools
More useful tools for Python iterators. A set of common utility functions.
Relationship to itertools
The itertools package (with an s) is a package in the standard library. It differs from itertoolz (with a z) in the following ways.
- itertools has an s. itertoolz has a z.
- itertools is strictly a library of [streaming algorithms](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_algorithm) while itertoolz accepts functions that require finite iterators.
- itertools changes very slowly and is managed by the official Python community (you submit a PEP). itertoolz is more loose (you submit a pull request)
- itertools is minimal. itertoolz accepts recipes.

itertoolz is on the Python Package Index (PyPi)
pip install itertoolz
or from source
itertoolz supports Python 2.6+ and Python 3.2+ with a common codebase.
It has no dependencies outside of the standard library.
