General utility modules that supply commonly-used functionality
jaraco.util contains a number of nominally useful, reusable classes and functions. Each is designed to be intuitively named and self-documenting (many with extensive doctests), though the project is also documented with runnable tests.
In general, this grab-bag of routines is deprecated, with much of the functionality moved or pending move to another, more appropriate home.
Some of the more interesting modules include:
- .dictlib contains RangeMap, a dictionary-like object that maps a range of values to a given value.
