IronPython and scipy/pyExcelerator

I'm looking forward to the release IronPython, primarily for its IDE. I
currently use scipy and pyExcelerator to crunch numbers and write them
to Excel: does can these packages be used with IronPython as well?

Thanks in advance

I don't think so unless scipy has a release for .net. I think all those nice
algorithms are in C or Fortran and mostly haven't been translated into C#.

You could try Python for .NET. This is a version of cPython with
support for .NET built in.

You may have to amend the code that Visual Studio produces to work with
Python for .NET rather than for IronPython (necessary changes may be
restricted to the import syntax).

SciPy makes extensive use of C extensions which aren't currently
supoorted by IronPython. There has been some preliminary work done dy
Seo Sanghyeon on a 'reflector' that uses ctypes to allow IronPython to
access cPython C extensions. My understanding is that it works (at
least partially) but that the exceptions it returns are (currently)
confusing.

See
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....7e157124943e9f

and also search the IronPython mailing lists. Alternatively you could
use interprocess communication between cPython and IronPython ;-)

All the best,

Hi I would like to 1. import an existing Excel-sheet (a template) 2. and add some data to it 3. and save it under a different name afterwards. To me it seems, that pyExcelerator does not support the reading for modification of an Excel-sheet. It allows only the "parse_xls" but I would like to keep the "formatting" in the template.
