Some modules/uses are, for instance: -Numpy (will use LAPACK if installed) -NetworkX -MPI libraries (pyMPI) -Database connectivity (Some of these modules just provide for thing that can be done within Mathematica, but code that uses them can actually be later run outside, independently from Mathematica. That was one of the things I was looking after, so I can use Mathematica as a research environment and once the code does what I intend it to do I can just run it somewhere else) Although I had other things in mind. For one, taking advantage of the interactivity of the Mathematic notebooks to test algorithms written in Python that I could later deploy as a module and use outside Mathematica. I also wanted to be able to use/connect to modules I had written in Python (or C/C++ ones wrapped on it). As it's the machine's native Python that it's embedded, there are a good bunch of highly optimized scientific packages already available (like the previously listed). -- Ero On Nov 23, 2006, at 11:41 AM, Frank Iannarilli wrote: > > Ero Carrera wrote: >> ...allows to use all of Python's standard modules. >> > > Thanks, Ero. > > Could you name some example Python modules that perform useful work, > that can't readily be done using Mathematica built-in or standard > packages?
