bgl Python on Mac OS X

I'm trying to build this. I've downloaded the boost libraries (version
1.34) and run configure, make and sudo make install without errors.

Then I've downloaded bgl-python (0.9) and, as instructed, found the
bjam executable from the boost hierarchy, copied it somewhere
convenient and run it in the bgl-python directory. That gave me this

Unable to load Boost.Build: could not find "boost-build.jam"
Attempted search from /Users/pzs/incoming/bgl-python-0.9 up to the
and in these directories from BOOST_BUILD_PATH and BOOST_ROOT: /usr/
Please consult the documentation at ''.

So I set $BOOST_ROOT to be the root of the boost 1.34 directory and
tried bjam again. This time I get:

error: Could not find parent for project at '.'
error: Did not find Jamfile or project-root.jam in any parent

Any ideas

Yes, that's one problem. The other problems are: (1) you haven't noticed that auchCRClo is *NOT* the same as uchCRClo (ditto "hi"). (2) the C code is missing global declarations, something like this: unsigned char auchCRCLo[256] = { yadda yadda yadda}; /* ditto "hi" */ These two tables of 8-bit constants correspond to the single "table" of 16-bit constants in the reference that Anton gave you. Aside: the code looks like it was originally Z80 assembly language subsequently transliterated into BDS C (of blessed memory). (3) you have misread/mistranslated auchCRCLo[uIndex] blindly and unconcernedly as uchCRCLo ^ uIndex !!!

Get the current date, python 2.2   (246 Views)
Using python 2.2 what is the simplest way to get the current date value I have looked in so many places. The question is often asked and the usual response indicates how to get the current date and time like now = time.localtime() I want just the date, like 2007-06-15. The value will go into a postgresql Date type column. Also, if postgres field of this type is set to time.localtime(), is the time portion of the date discarded, or stored 'invisibly', of will there be an error of some type Just thought someone here might know.
Reading image dimensions before it is loaded from a web form usingpython.   (237 Views)
, I am writing an application using python that allows the user to upload an image to a folder on the server. Is there a way to get the size of the file before it has been uploaded onto the server and give an error if the size does not comply to the maximum size. So far, my apps loads the image and checks it and then returns an error if the image is too big. Which is a bit pointless in that I should be able to get the file info before it is loaded, but I am not sure where to go. PIL reads the image size before it is loaded, but this is when I run this on my local machine. There is also a post by Will McGugan where he loads 1px and rejects it if its too big. But his apps is an image scraper, so I suppose it fits his use case where he checks the size and then pulls the image if it fits. Anyone with ideas on how to deal with this.
Re: Trying to choose between python and java   (159 Views)
I read in this thread lots of different (hopefully personal) opinions on the question of Java vs Python, so I thought I will post mines too (with the amendment that I am a Java guy, spending there more than 10 years). I don't think you can do a performance comparison upfront (without having it completely flawed :-) ). There are lots of important aspects that you need to take into consideration while doing such a comparison (startup time, gc configurability and performance, many many others), and I think the only one that is fair is the one your would get for your specific type of app. And the same applies for the speed of development/maintenance/etc. As with any other programming language: it has its own strong points and weak points. This applies to both Java and Python. And I don't think anybody on this list will be able to tell you upfront which one is a better fit for your app (at least not if they don't have an idea about your environment, your existing pl knowledge, your app, etc.). bests, ../alex -- ..w( the_mindstorm )p.
profiling a C++ python extension   (209 Views)
I have used gprof to profile stand alone C++ programs. I am also aware of pure python profilers. However, is there a way to get profile information on my C++ functions when they are compiled in a shared library (python extension module) and called from python. From what I can tell, gmon.out will not be generated unless the entire executable (python interpreter) was compiled with -pg. Is my only solution to recompile the python interpreter with -pg so that my extension module (also compiled with -pg) produces a gmon.out Any suggestions or tips would be helpful. Matt

Or pyro Pyro is short for PYthon Remote Objects. It is an advanced and powerful Distributed Object Technology system written entirely in Python, that is designed to be very easy to use. Never worry about writing network communication code again, when using Pyro you just write your Python objects like you would normally. With only a few lines of extra code, Pyro takes care of the network communication between your objects once you split them over different machines on the network. the gory socket programming details are taken care of, you just call a method on a remote object as if it were a local object! -- Nick Craig-Wood --

Why Because it would another way to do something you can do in other way. The *only* big value of lambda is than you can code a function in a small place, like: bt = Button(...,...,..., lambda evt: None) If you want to grow that in multiline, just use a named function: def multilinefunct(...): ... Remember that the *only* difference between the two functions is that one is anonymous, and for other you have to came up with a name (name that if is well thought, actually adds readibility to your code).
How does mod_python know where's Python installed ?   (207 Views)
I recently setup mod_python successfully and things work smooth. However, I do not remember telling mod_python where to find Python installation. There's not environment variable which gives that information. As such how does mod_python know where to find Python When I print sys.path in my scripts it contains my python installation folder. I'm wondering how does Apache/mod_python get this information I'm running Apache 2.2 on windows. -Puneet.

Help needed with translating perl to python   (194 Views)

Does python 2.3.3 pty module has a bug?   (247 Views)
System: Solaris Python version: 2.3.3 For a automation job, I used pexpect module together with python for creating a ftp session automatically and downloading the file. I notice that after closing the child. The file descriptor is not closed (check /proc//fd) After running the script for a while, I start seeing too many files open error. I have a development machine running Linux using python 2.3.3. I execute the same code on it. The file descriptor is closed everytime after the pexpect child is closed. My question is - Is this a bug with pty module for solaris for python 2.3.3 Appreciate your comments
