Python 2.4

Python is the glue that makes Scorpion extremely flexible. To enjoy the benefits of Python it is recommended to install  the following:

Python Home - www.python.org - The fastest growing and best Open-Source scripting language

  • Python 2.4.3 is used for Scorpion or higher
    • When installing Scorpion all the necessary python glue  for basic operation is installed
    • Installing Python 2.3 will add all the modules in the standard python with complete documentation

  • import this file - after unpacking the reg-file

into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\2.4\PythonPath using registry editor - will fix the problem  for english version - verify path names for other systems

Python for .Net

  • Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of the Python runtime with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR). It lets you script and build applications in Python, using CLR services and components written in any language that targets the CLR (C#, Managed C++, VB.NET, etc.).

  • .Net is supported from Scorpion Vision Software 4.2

  • Python for .Net requires .Net Framework 1.1 - download

  • .NET Framework 1.1 SDK - 106 MByte is available from Microsoft to download free of charge

  • Python for .Net requires a full Python installation

Python Modules

  • pySerial 2.2 - 30 kByte  is used for both python 2.3 and 2.4
    • Can be used to access any serial port from Scorpion
    • Ideal for stepper motor control / lcd display or serial io
    • The module requires a valid Python Installation
    • pySerial is open source and available on Source Forge - pySerial and on the Scorpion CD

Scorpion 3D - Required for advanced 3D solutions under Scorpion 7.0 and higher

Scorpion 3D requires the following libraries:

Intel Integrated Performance Primitives - IPP - Scorpion 7.2 option

Scorpion Arrlib is compiled with support for IPP. This improves the speed of resampling.

Download this package and add it to the Scorpion path. Should be located in the IPP folder.
