Write a back-end to pythoncad for loading dwg/dxf?
You might want to look at my CAD::Drawing Perl module, which has started to
grow the begginings of a GUI. I plan to eventually incorporate Art's dwg
reader as a backend (currently, it just uses the opendwg toolkit.)
Has pythoncad got any IPC capabilities yet? I've been thinking lately about
the possibility of TCP or socket communication. What would this do for your
load/save capabilities? (i.e. what if your save/load functions just spawned
a back-end and dumped/read XML over a pipe?)
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler."
