[ANNOUNCE] cURL and Python
Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 14:13:42 +0200 (METDST)
I've made a libcurl wrapper module for the Python programming language (see
http://www.python.org for details on Python). The wrapper is not complete,
but usable. In particular, it lacks the following:
- Function objects as callbacks (READ/WRITEFUNCTION)
- The getinfo function
- Type checking on setopt (currently segfaults here if the
wrong type is passed as argument to setopt)
- Installation with distutils
There is no proper distribution yet, but you may find the code in the
sourceforge cvs repository at http://pycurl.sourceforge.net.
Tweak the Makefile to your settings (basically setting the path of the Python
and curl include/libraries) and make.
The file 'test.py' is an example on how to use curl within Python programs.
I've only tested the wrapper on Python-2.1 but should work as expected on
prior versions of Python. I plan to make proper installation with distutils
and complete the wrapper shortly.
Bugs, fixes and soforth are most welcome!
