Python

Python meta package, includes core executable & runtime, help

  • Python commandline interpreter, and libraries.
  • The interpreter can be invoked as python in the osgeo4w shell.
  • The Python interpreter is not associated with the .py extension in the shell, so you must run .py files with python foobar.py and not by double-clicking on them
  • Documentation is not included (beyond builtin doc strings)
  • Tcl support is not included.
  • NumPy is a distinct add on package due to it's size.

Comprised of 3 sub-packages:

  • python-wrapper - Wrapper to set python environment for Osgeo4W (required)
  • python-core - Python executable and runtime (required)
  • python-help - Python compiled help file (optional with Advanced Install)
category Commandline_Utilities
requires shell python-wrapper python-core python-help
version 2.7.2-2

Other python pages of note:

Packager Notes

  • This package is harvested from the standard Python 2.7.2 .msi installer from python.org (see making a Python 2.7 package)
  • New Python extensions should be unpacked in osgeo4w\apps\Python27\Lib\site-packages
  • Include files and libraries are included, but in the apps\Python27 tree. The distutils/sysconfig.py settings should be correct.
  • Extensions may need to be compiled with VC7.1 to be compatible.
  • etc\ini\python.bat set PYTHONHOME to control sys.prefix and finding of libraries, etc. This should supersede any other python on the system when python is run within the OSGeo4W shell.
