Python for Embedded Systems?

Is there a Python packaging that is specifically for
embedded systems? ie, very small and configurable so the
user gets to select what modules to install?

For Linux-based embedded systems in particular?

I'm thinking of running it on the Linksys's Linux-based open
source router WRT54G. It has 4MB flash and 16MB RAM. I think
another model has 16MB flash. Any possibilities of running
Python on these systems?

If Python is not the best candidate for embedded systems because
of the size, what (scripting) language would you recommend?

PHP may fit but I don't quite like the language. Anything else?
Loa is small but it does not seem to be powerful enough.

You can run Python on the NSLU2 (Slug)

C is inadequate for embedded systems for the following reasons: 1) Direct addressing of memory mapped I/O is not supported simply and easily. You have to find work-arounds that are compiler dependent. You have to create macros , use casting and use indirect addressing (pointers) to read or write to memory mapped I/O. 2) C does not support real time interrupts. The interrupt vectoring is compiler dependent.

Are there any restrictions/problems for use of C++ STL in development in embedded systems? In particular: * Does STL require too much space/memory? * Is 'implementation of STL algorithms/methods' reenterable/reentrant? * What is the cost to provide continuity of vectors in memory? Any other problems? -- Alex Vinokur

The memory allocation issue in embedded systems is usually critical.. How can one manage that? 1. Via 'new' char* p = new (nothrow) char ; if (p == 0) { // He we know that it is impossible to allocate the requested memory // We can do something relevant.

I've written a piece of code that interfaces with Postgres. It needs to write a Postgres table to disk, which it does with the <COPYcom- mand. That command requires the absolute file name of the file being written to. Right now I've got it hard coded to the exact location where I want it, but that's not very portable. Is there some way in C to retrieve the absolute path name of the current directory, so that I could use that in my code...

When I want to store a number, I use "unsigned". I go with unsigned because it's the natural type for the system, and so should be the fastest. However, there are 8-Bit microcontrollers out there that do 8-Bit arithmetic faster than 16-Bit arithmetic, and so on these systems char is faster than int. Standarising C in such a way that int is at least 16-Bit, has this made C both slow and memory-hungry for embedded systems programming?

There are a few guarantees I exploit in the C Standard. For instance, I might write (unsigned)-1 to get the maximum value for an unsigned integer. Also, I might rely on things such as: memset(data,-1,sizeof data)

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
