======================================================================
               Psyco, the Python Specializing Compiler
======================================================================


                              VERSION 1.5
                              -----------

Psyco is a Python extension module which can massively speed up the
execution of any Python code.


REQUIREMENTS
------------

Psyco works on any recent version of Python (currently 2.1 to 2.4).
At present it *requires* a *PC* (i.e. a 386-compatible processor),
but it is OS-independant.

This program is still incomplete, but still it seems to have been
quite stable for some time and can give good results.

Note that Psyco works a bit better with Python versions starting
from 2.2.2.


QUICK INTRODUCTION
------------------

To install Psyco, do the usual

   python setup.py install

Manually, you can also put the 'psyco' package in your Python search
path, e.g. by copying the subdirectory 'psyco' into the directory
'/usr/lib/python2.x/site-packages' (default path on Linux).

Basic usage is very simple: add

  import psyco
  psyco.full()

to the beginning of your main script. For basic introduction see:

  import psyco
  help(psyco)
