See http://gmpy.sourceforge.net/ for details.
What is it: a wrapper for the GMP library, to provide multi-precision
arithmetic for Python. Multi-precision floats, and unbounded-precision
rationals, are not present in stock Python; multi-precision integers
('long') are, but gmpy's version of multi-precision integers is faster
for some operations (NOT all -- used to be, but Python 2.3 did serious
enhancements to some operations on longs) and provides lots of nifty
pre-packaged additional functions.
Minor changes and bug-fixes since the latest 0.9 pre-alpha; support for
Python 2.3. The Windows binary release is now for Python 2.3 _only_ (if
you're stuck with Python 2.2 on Windows, you can keep using gmpy 0.9
pre-alpha and not really suffer from that). Known bug on Windows: the
scan0 and scan1 functions appear broken (perhaps related to the lack of
a GMP 4.0 library for Windows -- haven't found one around yet).
Hello, I'm happy to announce "wxPyAtol"
The original program is written by Miroslav Rajcic and is called Atol
It is programmed in C++ using wxWindows
I have posted the sources to:
A few months ago, i couldn't imagine, that this is possible to do in
python + wxpython. But also with the help of win32 extensions, I
managed to get the most things work.
I know, it is almost not at all "pythonic",
but I wanted to keep it so, because it is better to compare
to the c++ sources, and maybe later, I will inlude more python
Maybe someone could help me and give me some pointers:
In the source, it is marked with todo.
for example to retrieve the imagelist from Windows fileextensions
self.m_hImageList = windll.shell32.SHGetFileInfo('.txt',
How can I get this in python?
thank you and best regards (and sorry for my bad english)

>From the word itself, pycatalog is a python based catalog generator.
It can output book and card catalog in Portable Document Format (PDF).
It is created using Python programming language, SQLite
embeded-database, Reportlab python reportab generator and wxPython, a
loadable GUI module for Python. It is platform independent, it will
run on Windows, Linux and Mac operating system. Its primary puspose is
to convert the MARC data into a printable card and book catalog
format. To download visit the pycatalog sourceforge page.

there have been so many changes, additions, contributions
and discussion of Stackless in the last few days, that I
did an update of the website and created new binaries as well.
There also were some kind people who sent some money via
PayPal. I would like to thank these, and encourage others
to follow their example.
Everybody is listed in the sponsors page.
There is a good chance for Stackless 3.0 for Python 2.3.3
to appear in the first days of February.
Thanks to all contributors who helped in any way!

The initial release of pymake, a make-like tool written in Python is
pymake is a simple make replacement which allows the specification of file
dependency graphs within Python. With it, you can perform conditional
complilation of source code, install software, run scripts, or any
repeatable sequence of tasks that ends up creating a known set of files on
your filesystem. On subsequent runs of the same set of tasks, pymake
performs the least amount of work possible to create the same set of files,
only performing the work that it detects has not already been performed by

Call for Participation
PyCon DC 2004 Sprints
March 20-23, 2004
The Python Software Foundation is sponsoring four days of sprints before
PyCon -- Saturday through Tuesday. We invite developers to attend the
sprints. We will provide space and network connectivity for developers
who want to work on open source projects.
A sprint is a two or three day focused development session, in which
developers pair in a room and focus on building a particular subsystem.
A sprint is organized with a coach leading the session. The coach sets
the agenda, tracks activities, and keeps the development moving. The
developers work in pairs using XP's pair programming approach.
We have several sprints already planned, including
- Docutils and reStructuredText
- Twisted topics
- Zope 2 and Zope 3
- Python core development
If you are interested in participating in a sprint, please send mail to
the appropriate sprint coach or to me. Developers of all experience
levels are welcome. We are also looking for coaches for other sprints
topics; if you have an idea, post it in the Wiki or send me an email.
The PSF will waive PyCon registration fees for coaches of sprints with
at least two attendees.
Hope to see you there,
PyCon sprint chair
