Release of verion 2.0.1 of the SimPy Simulation Package

Release 2.0.1 of SimPy simulation package

SimPy 2.0.1 is a bug-fix release of SimPy 2.0. It repairs a number of errors in SimPy libraries, models and documentation.


Version 2.0 of SimPy was a major release. It differs from the predecessor version (1.9.1) as follows:

  • Addition of an objected oriented API, while maintaining full backward compatibility. With external packages such as Parallel Python, this allows running SimPy programs in parallel on multiple computers/CPUs/cores.

    With 2.0, it is simple to add new simulation classes and modules which are subclassing class Simulation.

  • Totally restructured, significantly smaller code base, getting rid of all code duplication. This makes for easier maintenance.

  • Structuring and rendering of all documentation with the Sphinx documentation tool. This results in one easily browseable and searchable document.

Re: installation

  1. Open a command window (Start -> Run -> cmd).
  2. Change your default directory to where you unpacked setup.py.
  3. Type python setup.py install
  4. Let us all know how it goes!

Re: installation

No renaming. No saving.
It ain't all that hard.
You should have a file called setup.py after you unzipped.

From: tonyon boyo [mailto:taboyo22 <at> yahoo.com]

I guess the unpacking is where my problem is, what file do i rename setup.py?  should i have saved the file to site-packages.

Re: installation

Tonyon,

Check that you have the "setup.py" file placed in the same directory (folder) as your python executable file ("python.exe"). Then proceed as Patrick describes.

I had similar problems installing the SimPy module when I first started about two months ago.

The SimPy installation documentation, I believe, assumes that users are fairly advanced in coding/using the command line. More explicit/detailed steps would be helpful for novice programmers.

Re: installation

It is not good practice to put the setup.py fiule in the same directory as python.exe. If you are having to do this it means that the python directory is not on your Path. This implies that python was not correctly installed. What the Path environment variable does is to tell Windows where to look for executable programs such as Python, otherwise it doesn't know what the "python" command means.
 
Setting the Path environment variable is required as part of the Python install, and unless you get this right you won't have trouble just with Simpy, but also with any other Python add-ons and even doing simple Python programming.
 
So my advice is to go back and get your Python installation right, then install Simpy.

Actually, there's not much to add, the docs
(http://docs.python.org/using/windows.html#excursus-setting-environment-variables)
also have a link to
http://www.chem.gla.ac.uk/~louis/software/faq/q1.html with
instructions for all windows versions.

The only thing you'd also want to add is the scripts directory. Other
python scripts (ipython, easy_install) will be placed here, so your
user path variable will look like this:

%PATH%;C:\Python25;C:\Python25\Scripts

Regards,

Tony
