Software News   Software News : AmigaPython 2.3.3 alpha 2 released
   posted by Mobileconnect on 3-Apr-2004 9:14:48 (1652 reads)
Tim Ocock has released another alpha build of his version 2.3.3 update of Irmen de Jong's AmigaPython


Python is an open source interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for rapid application development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together. Python's simple, easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance.

New in alpha release 2
-XML (pyexpat) support working
-bzip2 and zlib (zip) support
-socket module for Internet access works
-Uses ieee math libraries instead of FPU only ones
-More complete amiga and amigapath modules, fixing st_size bug amongst others

Maybe one day - apps like that probably need the Tk GUI toolkit, and it will be a while before I have ported that.

Honestly though I don't know what Fleecy Moss is waffling on about when he says they need to design a language independent scripting framework. As AmigaPython, and Distributed BASIC, show, ARexx works perfectly well as a framework for other languages.


The point being, AREXX is not available to us in source code form AFAIK, and even if it where it is in 68k assembly. Furthermore, AREXX has exposed a lot of internal structures that would need to be copied over, making this very rigid (since some AREXX code was in amiga.lib, which is statically linked). So you either keep compatibility, or better start from scratch with a truely language-agnostic interface.

That is what Fleecy Moss is waffling on about.
