Getting Started

Here's a short, unfinished "Getting started with Python on RISC OS" guide.

RISC OS Python 2.4.1 beta

(RISC OS version 2005-09-30; first RISC OS release)

Main RISC OS specific change: swimodule and GUI now use Python long integers

Binary distribution

For documentation see Python.org.

Extensions

I haven't updated any of the libraries yet. If you need a certain library, please let me know. (For installation: extract and double click. Don't use from within the archives directly, as a lot of files would be created there.)

RISC OS Python 2.3

(RISC OS version 2003-08-03; first RISC OS release)

Binary distribution

For documentation see Python.org.

Extensions

I haven't updated any of the libraries yet. If you need a certain library, please let me know. (For installation: extract and double click. Don't use from within the archives directly, as a lot of files would be created there.)

Examples

Building from the sources

If you want to build Python on your own, you should download the standard python sources from Python.org and look at the directory RISCOS. You will need Acorn C/C++ Version 5. You should also download the RISC OS additions above.
