PySTDF 1.0.0 released

I feel comfortable enough with the stability and structure of PySTDF to make an initial release. This release currently provides:
  • Modules for parsing, indexing and working with STDF data.
  • Several scripts that demonstrate how to use the modules to parse files and more. The stdf2atdf script is a good drop-in replacement for commercial STDF to ATDF converters.
As a library, I think its pretty darned useful for working with STDF data. As an application, "you ain't seen nothin' yet!".

Python 2.4 or greater is recommended.

Windows package:
UNIX package: pystdf-1.0.0.tar.gz

Installation is typical of most Python distutils-generated packages. Extract the archive, 'cd' into the extracted pystdf-1.0.0 directory, and do:

$ python install

(On UNIX, you might need superuser privileges to install, or specify a different installation prefix on the command line. Do 'python install --help' for assistance.)

Windows will install the stdf2atdf script somewhere like C:\Python24\Scripts. UNIX will put it in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin (depending on Python's installation prefix).
