Useful Python classes.
The PLIB.CLASSES package contains a number of useful packages and modules that extend the Python standard library.
Note: PLIB.CLASSES works with Python 2.7. If you are using Python 3, see the PLIB3.CLASSES package, available at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/plib3.classes.
The setup.py script for PLIB.CLASSES uses the setuputils helper module, which helps to automate away much of the boilerplate in Python setup scripts. This module is available as a separate release at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuputils.
The PLIB.CLASSES Package
The following classes are available in the plib.classes namespace:
- The StateMachine class implements a basic finite state machine with customizable code to be run at each state transition.
To install PLIB.CLASSES, you can simply run:
$ python setup.py install
at a shell prompt from the directory into which you unzipped the source tarball (the same directory that this README file is in). This will install PLIB and then run each of the post-install scripts in the scripts directory.
