It is from python library. What does [d]*len(keys) mean?
d is the name of dict but put d in [] really confused me.

Where in which 'python library? I cannot findI the above in 2.7 or 3.6 stdlib. The code should be replaced by

It should be noted that the code above is really bad Python.
Better alternatives are the simple loop

d = {}
for i in range(256):
     d[i] = chr(i)

or the dict comprehension

d = {i: chr(i) for i in range(256)}
