Hi, I'm trying to setup viewcvs to work with subversion 1.2.0 on Linux with Python 2.4.1. The last viewcvs (from CVS) needs subversion python bindings. I installed swig and built subversion from source with it. Everything works fine until I try to build the Python bindings. When I try "make swig-py" I get the following, Python related, error: # make swig-py

I searched around but could not find win32all source or binaries for earlier versions of Python. Don't ask me why but I have to use Python 1.5.2 in this project :) The sourceforget page only has latest versions. ActiveState does not even have 1.5.2 for download. Is it still available somewhere? Thanks!

Hi, Is there a way in python to output binary files? I need to python to write out a stream of 5 million floating point numbers, separated by some separator, but it seems that all python supports natively is string information output, which is extremely space inefficient. I'd tried using the pickle module, but it crashed whenever I tried using it due to the large amount of data involved. Thanks for your help!
