cpython-withatomic / Demo / README

The branch 'legacy-trunk' does not exist.
This directory contains various demonstrations of what you can do with
Python.  The demos are grouped sub(sub*)directories according to
required optional built-in modules.

scripts		Some useful Python scripts that I put in my bin
		directory.  No optional built-in modules meeded.

sockets		Examples for the new built-in module 'socket'.

sgi		Demos that only run on Silicon Graphics machines.
		These require at least one of the optional built-in
		modules that only make sense for the SGI, such as
		the modules 'gl' and 'al'.  Split in subdirectories
		per subject.

stdwin		Demos that use the STDWIN library.  Require the 'stdwin'
		built-in module.

WARNING: many scripts are executable and have a first line saying

	#! /usr/local/python

This is unlikely to give good results unless you've really installed
the latest version python there.  Edit the first line before
installing such scripts; to try them out, you can just say "python" or enter python interactively and say "import foo".
