ebmodule 2.0 ============ Tamito KAJIYAMA <25 September 2001> This package is a suite of Python wrapper modules of the EB library, a C library for accessing electronic dictionaries. Using this package Python programs can easily retrieve information from electronic dictionaries of the EB and EPWING formats. The latest version of this package is available at the following location: http://pseudo.grad.sccs.chukyo-u.ac.jp/~kajiyama/python/ Requirements ------------ This package requires the EB library (version 3.1 and later). The source distribution of the EB library is available at the following location: http://www.sra.co.jp/people/m-kasahr/eb/ This package supports Python 1.5.2 and later. Installation ------------ This package provides two installation procedures. o Using Distutils The users of Python 2.0 and later can choose this option. It uses Distutils, the standard installer modules adopted in Python 2.0. Run commands as follows: $ python setup.py build $ su # python setup.py install o Using Makefile Another option is provided for the users of Python 1.5.2. Run commands as follows: $ make $ su # make install You can specify the version of Python that you want to use as follows, if you have multiple versions: $ make PYTHON=python1.5 $ su # make PYTHON=python1.5 install Usage ----- This package provides two Python modules. o The eb module This module has almost the same API with the underlying EB library. See the EB library reference for the use of the functions and constants in the eb module. The library reference is included in the source distribution of the EB library, and is also available at the following location: http://www.sra.co.jp/people/m-kasahr/eb/doc/eb_toc.html o The eblib module This module provides a set of classes that encapsulate the low-level API of the eb module. See the source file (eblib.py) for the use of the eblib module. There is a simple application code at the bottom of the source file. History ------- o Version 2.0 <25 September 2001> - Supported the EB library version 3.X o Version 1.0 <18 September 2001> - First public release - Supported the EB library version 2.X License ------- This is free software; you can freely redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License (version 2 or later).
