    Python Programming Language

    Hi there,

    I have a request from a maths teacher who wants to include an introduction to computer programming by using python with a graphics library. Would there be any security implications to the network? And also, would it be possible for it to be installed on a terminal server/thin client enviornment.

    I hope not, it's installed on every PC in the school here... What sort of graphics library - something to do graphical user interfaces, or something to write images to files? If the latter, you want the Python Image Library, which I think comes included with ActivePython or is simply an apt-get away on Linux.

    And also, would it be possible for it to be installed on a terminal server/thin client enviornment.
    Just set up a Linux machine, join it to your domain via Samba, and let people log in with their normal usernames and passwords via the PuTTY SSH client.

    Thanks David, I think the request is to allow the girls to create code that will display basic shapes IE rectangles, triangles etc. Our maths and ICT suite is all thin clients so it would definately have to sit on a Windows terminal server.

    Simply install ActivePython on your Terminal Server, then do a quick Google for "Python GUI programming" to get some example code.
