Python is a small and fast dynamic typing interpreted language suitable for scripting. A major feature is the easy extension of its core facilities. It is suitable for use within graphics for providing extension modules to access c/c++ graphics libraries for faster scripting of scenes and animations. (See jpy in jungle software projects.)
Python is available generally in the cpsc network for Solaris only. It has been installed and compiled on SGI in the ~jungle/src/Python-1.5.1 directory. Also the interpreter has been linked into ~jungle/IRIX6.2/bin/python. Please see the README there for information on its use.
