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 foo.py" or enter python interactively and say "import foo".
