What is py2geom

it is a python lib that provides 2geom functionality. in other words: python bindings to 2geom. it has not been released in binaries yet, so you have to build them yourself from source or read on below...

Some examples

   import py2geom as geom
   a = geom.Point(1,2)
   b = geom.Point(31,2)
   print a, b
   print "Dot product:",,b)
   print "a times 2:", a * 2
   print "Equal? (0 = no, 1 = yes):", a == b

Obtaining binaries

Microsoft Windows

Johan built py2geom binaries for you and packaged them in a 7zip file: py2geom-2023.7z (svn rev. 2023)

You have to unpack the 7z file into "Lib\site-packages\" whereever you have python installed. For example: "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages", so you get "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\py2geom\..." with the files in it.

You can run to see if python has found py2geom (it should do something, instead of complain of not finding python).

Building py2geom

Microsoft Windows

The new version of Boost creates problems for building py2geom on Windows. We are figuring out which way of building will be best in future.
