PyTables is a Python package which allows dealing with HDF5 tables. Such a table is defined as a collection of records whose values are stored in fixed-length fields. PyTables is intended to be easy-to-use, and tries to be a high-performance interface to HDF5. To achieve this, the newest improvements introduced in Python 2.2 (like generators or slots and metaclasses in new-brand classes) has been used. Pyrex creation extension tool has been chosen to access the HDF5 library.
This package should be platform independent, but until now I've tested it only with Linux. It's the first public release (v 0.1), and it is in alpha state.

There is still not a project home page. Perhaps in next days.
