1 : efrank 1.1 Numerical Python
2 :    
3 :     Versions after 20.0 require Python 2.0 or later. To take advantage of
4 :     the "rich comparisons" (i.e., to be able to compare arrays and get
5 :     back a boolean result) you need Python 2.1.
6 :    
7 :     Web site: http://numpy.sourceforge.net
8 :     Project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy
9 :     Discussion group: numpy-discussion@lists.sourceforge.net
10 :    
11 :     ===> Silicon Graphics bug:
12 :     Due to a bug in the SGI compiler's handling of complex
13 :     variables, you must build your *python* without optimization
14 :     on a certain file. Consult the Python installation instructions
15 :     for the details.
16 :    
17 :     INSTALLING BINARY DISTRIBUTIONS ON WINDOWS
18 :     Get the .exe installers and simply run them. Python must already be installed.
19 :    
20 :     BUILDING AND INSTALLING NUMERIC PTYHON FROM SOURCE
21 :     For Windows get the .zip sources. For other platforms use the .tar.gz sources.
22 :     After unpacking change to the top-level directory.
23 :    
24 :     Using the python into which you wish to install Numeric Python, execute:
25 :    
26 :     python setup.py install
27 :    
28 :     To clean up completely after an install, on Unix you can do:
29 :     sh makeclean.sh
30 :    
31 :     See the Distutils documentation for many command-line options as to
32 :     installation locations, etc.
33 :    
34 :     By default Numeric builds itself with a small version of the LAPACK and
35 :     BLAS libraries. See setup.py. To use your own BLAS and LAPACK you will
36 :     need to edit the settings in setup.py.
37 :    
38 :     OPTIONAL PACKAGES
39 :     Subdirectory Packages contains optional packages. By default, setup.py installs
40 :     all of them; if you do not want all of them, simply remove the corresponding
41 :     lines from setup.py.
42 :    
43 :     Each package has its own setup.py file for separate installation.
44 :    
45 :     Package Properties is required for package kinds and package MA.
46 :    
47 :     CVS Repository, Bug Tracking, Documentation, Patches, Mailing Lists
48 :    
49 :     Access to the source via CVS, a bug tracking facility, a patch submission
50 :     facility, and the numpy-discussion mailing list are all on the
51 :     Numerical Python Project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy
52 :    
53 :     The Numerical Python Web Site is http://numpy.sourceforge.net. It contains
54 :     links to the project page and the documentation. It also has a few links
55 :     to related sites.
56 :    
57 :     History
58 :    
59 :     This software was originally written by Jim Hugunin when he was at MIT, later
60 :     at CNRI.
61 :    
62 :     Then Paul Dubois of LLNL became the "keeper". LLNL has released any
63 :     contributions to it by LLNL personnel for free redistribution.
64 :     However, many people have contributed to Numpy. It is a classic open source effort
65 :     that nobody "owns". So, Numerical Python is placed in the SourceForge under
66 :     the Python license. The LLNL license is in Legal.htm.
