Re: Pythonika: Python in Mathematica


I'm having trouble getting Pythonica to start with Mathematica 5.2 on 
Windows XP.

I'm using the supplied notebook Pythonika.nb.  I begin by evaluating the 
cell

   app = "d:\Language\pythonika\bin\Windows\Pythonika.exe";
   Install[app];

where app indeed gives the correct path to Pythonika.exe.  I get a 
pop-up window asking, "Choose a MathLink program to launch".

Should I be selecting MathKernel.exe?  If I do, then the cell I 
evaluated just keeps running (thickened cell bracket, and nothing 
returned), and I cannot even get evaluation of the next cell --

   Links[app]

to return a result.

What am I doing wrong?
