[Pythonmac-SIG] python extension on MacOS
Fri, 07 Jul 2000 09:39:02 -0400
I am currently looking at various technical options for an upcoming project.
I have some experience at cross platform (linux, MacOS, Windoze) Tcl/Tk
development, including Tcl/Tk extension via shared libraries with the help
I have been looking at Python and like what I see (including Tkinter, in
that it is X-platform and my Tk experience is useful there).
In order for choosing Python for this project I would need to be able to
extend it (using a shared library? as I have done for Tcl/Tk) in order to
interface with some hardware (a data acquisition system). Is there an
example project out there of a Python extension for the Mac that I could
use (preferably using CodeWarrior for the MacOS) as a template?
I also have *very* limited experience with the Python extensions like
numpy. Is it feasible to do all of my number crunching (typical would be
matrix operations, scaling for plotting purposes) using numpy on the Mac?
Are there any plotting extensions for the Mac?
Also, with MacOS-X (server?) out there, would I be better off going
directly to that and using *nix tools instead?
I am currently working through ORA "Learning Python". Any other
