Hi,

Thanks for the answers:

I saw it, but forgot to include it in my listing.

Yes, I thought so. (I might keep them in mind anyway, if I get to a more
biologically approach someday, just like ffnet, which doesn't support
recurrent networks but might be good in what it does.)

Fann seems to be inable to simulate recurrent networks, too. (There are
some older discussions, but I found no trace of a successful
implementation.)

So my main interest would be Con-x, PyNeurGen and PyBrain. Can you tell
me anything about these modules or point me to where to find more
information?

Greetings,
Gereon
