Importing modules into IronPython

0 votes

I have to shift a Python 2.7 program to run in Windows. Doing that has forced me to use IronPython because my program is dependent on a .dll file that uses .NET framework.

I moved all my code to Iron Python and modified it to work with the dll. But I cant import PyQt4 module into the project. Is there a way I can do that? Please Help.

Generally, extensions that aren't pure Python can only be used with the interpreter they were designed for. There has been some attempt to get CPython extensions working under IronPython (there's a tracking
issue on IronPython's bug tracker-, but I don't know how
well it works.

Attempting to import modules from Shogun to python from a non-standard python directory i.e. from my /home/xxx directory. Is there a way on ubuntu to selectively some modules, scripts, data from one directory and others modules, scripts from another directory. In other words, is there a file(s) that provide pointers to where these modules are located.

I have an application which uses extensively python 2.7.6 (CPython).

The issue that I see is the following: "If there are only pyc files, the loading time of the application is much more than if I have pyc and py files. It is behind with 2 minutes more than if it had py files"

Do you have any idea why this is happening?

Iam on python 2.7 and linux .I need to know if we need to place the modules in a particular or it doesn't matter at all while writing the program.

For Example

import os
import shlex
import subprocess
import time
import sys
import logging
import plaftform.cluster
from util import run

def main():
 """ ---MAIN--- """

if __name__ == '__main__':

In the above example :

I am guessing may be the python modules like os , shlex etc come first and later the user defined modules like import plaftform.cluster etc

Sorry if my question sounds dump , I was running pep8 and don't see its bothered much about it

When I start a python-script I get messages like "module_x is missing". I then perform an apt-cache search module_x, followed by an apt-get install name_of_missing_module.deb

I was wondering whether someone here has a kind of method which automatically looks for the missing modules as debian-packages and offers to install them?

I have started looking into distutils because I need to write an extension module in C (for performance reasons) and distutils seems to be the most straight-forward way.

I have had success building a C file into a Python extension module using "python build" but I am wondering what the recommended way for using that module during development is. While writing Python code I am used to just run the code from the source directory. But the built extension modules .so of course does not just end up on sys.path magically.

So how do I run my code so it will find the built extension module? Do I pass the output directory on the command line manually or is there some other solution? I would like to still be able to run the code from the source directory as I am using PyCharm to edit and debug the code.
