Work with list of lists of tuples

I have this list:

dCF3v=[[(1.90689635276794, -44704.76171875)],
       [(1.90689635276794, -44705.76171875)],
       [(1.90689635276794, -44706.76171875)],
       [(1.90689635276794, -44707.76171875)]

I'd like to compare the second element of each tuple and find the absolute maximum:


My code looks like:

for x in dCF3v:
    if abs(x[1])>abs(CF3):


You have a list which holds lists which hold a tuple. So, you probably want abs(x[0][1]). Then you command can simply be:

max(abs(x[0][1]) for x in dCF3v)

More to the point, you probably actually want to change the data structure to a list holding tuples:

dCF3v = [x[0] for x in dCF3v]

which then would look like:

max(abs(x[0]) for x in dCF3v)

Or, if you wanted the entire tuple to be returned instead of just the second element:

max(dCF3v,key=lambda x:abs(x[0]))

git frontend function(ality) for smart http git in php?

php git apache gitolite

I am busy installing gitolite3 with smart http. Gitolite3, essentially, is just a bunch of scripts that relay requests back to the git-http-backend (i think), and calls all sorts of hooks
