Hello group,

    A DJGPP-built Python 2.2.1 binary has been uploaded to
http://phaseit.net/Python/python-djgpp.221.tar.gz .

For those familiar with Python:
This package works much better when used with DJGPP, a full ncurses
installation, and the Python 2.2 standard libraries.
        Dynamic Linking:
        The Dynamic Linking package (libdl.a) from Andrew Zabolotny has been
used in this build, but has not been tested. Dlmodule is part of this port,
but has not been tested.

        Richard Dawe's libsocket port may enable some low-level options, but
socketmodule.c still does not compile as of now. Libsocket is not being
actively developed.

        Yes, this program should be able to do all of your XSLT 1.0
processing, as well (Actually, my goal is that Python can to the dishes,
too, by the time that I'm done with it :-)
        This has been made possible by Dave Kuhlman's Python wrapper for the
Gnome LibXSLT library. See the subfolder XSLT.
        See http://www.rexx.com/~dkuhlman/libxsltmod.html and

        Ncurses support:
        It made it in(ncurses 5.2) but I haven't tested it on systems other
than my own.
        Terminfo is a terminal interpretation database that must be kept in
the directory structure in which it comes. Additional terminals can be
compiled using the accompanying tic.exe.

    Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language. Its use varies from networking to shell scripting.
