Light python wrapper for the ORTHPOL package
This is the orthpol package. It is a frontend to the Fortran package orthpol written by W Gautschi .
 Gautschi, W. (1994). Algorithm 726: ORTHPOL–a package of routines for generating orthogonal polynomials and Gauss-type quadrature rules. ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software (TOMS), 20(1), 21–62. doi:10.1145/174603.174605
The package depends on a C++ porting of the Fortran library orthpol. Thus both C++ and Fortran compilers must be installed on the machine. The code is tested using the GCC compiler suite or clang for the compilation and linking of C++ code, and the gfortran compiler for the Fortran part of the code.
Make sure to have an up-to-date version of pip:
$ pip install –upgrade pip
Automatically install the software using the command:
$ pip install orthpol
If this doesn’t work, the package can be manually downloaded and installed through the following procedure:
$ cd <download_dir>
$ pip download orthpol
$ tar xzf orthpol-X.X.X.tar.gz
$ cd orthpol-X.X.X
$ python setup.py install
Initial python porting (working only for python 2.x)
Modified interface to account for changes in the SpectralToolbox
Complete integration of orthpol into SpectralToolbox
Porting to python 3.x and back compatibility with python 2.x
Automated installation through pip
Improved install script.
Fixed bug in Py_polyeval. Access to data is now done only through PyArray_GETPTR macros.
Added function to compute monomial coefficients
