I am happy to announce Guppy-PE 0.1.9
Guppy-PE is a library and programming environment for Python, currently providing in particular the Heapy subsystem, which supports object and heap memory sizing, profiling and debugging. It also includes a prototypical specification language, the Guppy Specification Language (GSL), which can be used to formally specify aspects of Python programs and generate tests and documentation from a common source.
The main news in this release:
o A patch by Chad Austin to compile with Visual Studio 2003 and Python 2.5 C compilers. I think this may fix similar problems with other Microsoft compilers.
o Interactive help system, providing a .doc attribute that can be used to get info on available attributes in text form and also by invoking a browser.
o New documentation file, heapy_tutorial.html. It contains for now an example of how to get started and use the interactive help.
o Bug fix wrt pop for mutable bitset. (Not used in heapy, only in sets/test.py)
o guppy.hpy().test() now includes the set-specific tests.
o Remote monitor does not longer require readline library being installed.
Guppy-PE 0.1.9 is available in source tarball format on the Python Package Index (a.k.a. Cheeseshop):
