8     Summary
9     --------------------------------------------------------------------
10    
11     Pyvisi is the Python visualisation interface: a generic Python-based interface
12     to many different scientific visualisation packages.
13    
14     See http://pyvisi.sourceforge.net
15

17     --------------------------------------------------------------------
18     Installation
19     --------------------------------------------------------------------
20    
21     Pyvisi is just a python module ... treat it as any other module
22    
23     * Global Instalation
24    
25     As root use
26    
27     > python setup.py install
28    
29     This will install the files, in the appropriate place for
30     your python distribution. This will be something like
31     e.g. /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/
32    
33     * Local instalation:
34    
35     You can supply the base directory using
36    
37     > python setup.py install --home=<dir>
38    
39     which will install the files in
40    
41     <dir>/lib/python/
42    
43     for more help and options use
44     > python setup.py install --help
45    
46     also see http://www.python.org/doc/current/inst/ for more details on
47     using the distutils package
48

50     --------------------------------------------------------------------
51     Dependencies
52     --------------------------------------------------------------------
53    
54     * Numeric package
55    
56     Pyvisi does some computation, and to be able to do this requires the
57     Numeric python package. You can get this from
58     http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy
59    
60     Pyvisi depends upon the relevant renderer module's application and/or python
61     wrappers to be installed so that the renderer module can be used. At
62     present, the vtk and gnuplot renderer modules are being developed.
63    
64     * Gnuplot renderer module
65    
66     You must have gnuplot installed (version 4.0 or above). You can get
67     gnuplot from http://www.gnuplot.info.
68     Note that gnuplot version 3 is no longer supported by pyvisi.
69    
70     You must have the Gnuplot.py (version 1.7 or greater) python wrapper for
71     gnuplot. You can get this from http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net/.
72    
73     * VTK renderer module
74    
75     You must have vtk version 4.2 or above installed. You can get vtk from
76     http://www.vtk.org.
77     Note that when you install vtk, that you must install the python wrappers
78     as well (this is explained in the vtk installation information.)
