This month we'll be having a presentation by our own Peter Hansen 
regarding his use of ctypes and PySerial to create a "robot driver" 
(don't ask me, I just work here)... here's his summary:

    "CavroCom: A Brief Description of a Python-based Robot Driver for

    This quick talk will cover the use of ctypes and PySerial to build
    an ActiveX/COM server interface allowing a LabVIEW program to talk
    to a robot via the serial port, with a brief excursion into using
    py2exe and InnoSetup to build the distribution.

I'll bring along my own little ctypes project (wxAppBar) in case there's 
some extra time and people want to see ctypes going in the other 
direction.  We'll try to make sure there's time for general questions 
and discussion of Pythonic news as well.

As usual, we're meeting on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Givex 
offices near Spadina and Adelaide (downtown).  We normally go to the 
pool hall (the Charlotte Room) just down the street for 
dinner/coffee/drinks afterward.  You can find all the details here:

Have fun, and hope to see you all (well, those in and around Toronto) there,

[ps: resending due to apparent server failure, sorry if this shows up 
multiple times]
