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...
#!/usr/bin/python import py2geom as geom a = geom.Point(1,2) b = geom.Point(31,2) print a, b print "Dot product:", geom.dot(a,b) print "a times 2:", a * 2 print "Equal? (0 = no, 1 = yes):", a == b
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 test_lib2geom.py to see if python has found py2geom (it should do something, instead of complain of not finding python).
Building py2geom is easy if you have Inkscape's Devlibs. Go to lib2geom's dir and execute:
cmake -i .
When the option "Variable Name: BOOST_PYTHON_LIBRARY" pops up, set it to "c:/devlibs/lib/libboost_python.a", or where you have that file located in your copy of Inkscape's Devlibs. Idem for BOOST_PYTHON_LIBRARY_DEBUG.
