AVPython on ArcGIS?

P: n/a
I know that AVPython was written to allow scripting in ArcView 3.*,
but I am wondering if this module works in ArcGIS 8.*? I notice that
the last release is quite old; has development ceased on this project?

Thanks,
Chris

AVPython itself will not be ported to ArcGIS 8 or 9.
However, I have been working occasionally to make ArcObjects
accessible from Python. I call it PyArcObjects. I made
some progress, but also found some gotchas in the ArcObjects
typelibs. All in all, this is a much more ambitious project
than AVPython, and will take longer to get right.

Considering some changes that are happening with ArcGIS 9,
that will probably make a better target platform than ArcGIS
8.

Damn! gazumped on the name! I'm awaiting legal clearance from my
employer to release a ctypes based interface package (which I'd planned to
call PyArcObjects) to the ArcObjects COM API, based on the ArcGIS 8.3
typelibs.

So far it works well for what I've needed to do.
