It's been quite awhile since I used python, but I was digging around on 
PC for something on precession, and discovered some code for it, 
prec.py.   Here are the first few lines.

#!/usr/bin/env python
P.T.Wallace   Starlink   10 July 1994
2002-07-08 ROwen    Converted to Python.
2007-04-24 ROwen    Converted from Numeric to numpy (in test code).
import RO.PhysConst
from euler import *

It dies on RO.PhysConst when I run it.  Probably a further difficulty is 
the euler reference.
I have the code for RO.PhysConst.py

What needs to be done to successfully execute prec.py?
