What python modules are available?

P: n/a
How do I find out what python modules are installed on a Solaris
platform?

I tried to import numarray, but python couldn't find it.

They're usually stored in something like /usr/lib/python2.4
And you can find most of the available modules at

ask the person who did the installation? or run this script:

numarray isn't a standard module; see the library reference for a list
of modules that you can expect to be available on most platforms (but
make sure you check the page for the modules you're interested in, to
see if they're platform-specific or otherwise optional)

All I need is something to provide me with array features. I can't
remember why I chose to use numarray a while ago...

You will probably want numpy these days. numarray is being phased out.

Hi all,

Thats ridiculous! why is that the numpy implementation documentation is
put on sale and not available freely to everyone?

In brief, because otherwise there wouldn't be any complete documentation. With
all due respect to the Numeric manual's authors, it was never complete and
occasionally inaccurate over its lifetime. Time is not free.

On the other hand, if you are willing to put your time where your demanding
mouth is, the community would appreciate your efforts in expanding the freely
available documentation:
