Apologies if this has been asked; I haven't yet Googled the archives.
>From a brief email conversation, Guido pointed me to this newsgroup to
ask the following questions:
"Is Python 'mature' enough to be considered the primary language for
embedded systems? Is the performance there for real-time applications
(eg avionics, real-time control systems) or is it still more suitable
"...as a glue language, used to combine components written in C++" ?"
"Has anyone tried to shorten development time when porting code to a
new embedded hardware platform, by trying to convert legacy code (C/C+
+/Ada) to Python?"
I'm currently thinking that Python isn't there yet but certainly would
like to hear any feedback.
Your input is greatly appreciated; thanks!
