calling python from lisp


M

Martin Rubey

Dear all,

I'm trying to call from common lisp functions written for Sage
(www.sagemath.org), which in turn is written in python. To do so, I tried
http://common-lisp.net/project/python-on-lisp/. It was quite easy to get it to
run and do some simple things with python.

However, I was unable to get sage to run within it.

If I start my local python 2.5 and follow (roughly)
http://www.sagemath.org/doc/tut/node55.html

it works nicely:

[email protected]:~/Documents/sage-3.1.4/local/bin$ . ./sage-env
[email protected]:~/Documents/sage-3.1.4/local/bin$ /usr/bin/python
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 31 2008, 17:28:52)
[GCC 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

But not so from within python-on-lisp. Below the complete log. But actually,
the first warning occurs already when importing sys (I have little python
experience and no idea what sys contains)

sys:1: RuntimeWarning: Python C API version mismatch for module pol: This Python has API version 1013, module pol has version 1011.

As far as I understand python on lisp, it provides an interface to the python
library:

(cffi:define-foreign-library python-library
:)darwin :)framework "Python"))
:)unix :)or "libpython2.5.so.1.0" "libpython2.4.so.1.0"
"libpython2.3.so.1.0"))
:)windows :)or "python25.dll" "python24.dll" "python23.dll") )
(t :)default "libpython")))

Sage comes with it's own python, however, without a library. On the otherhand,
above I demonstrated that sage also works with the python interpreter that
comes with kubuntu. (maybe it needs the interpreter, and the library is not
sufficient?)

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Martin

Dear all,

I'm trying to call from common lisp functions written for Sage
(www.sagemath.org), which in turn is written in python.

Maybe those functions will work under CLPython?

CLPython is different from python-on-lisp; it's front-end for Lisp that
understands Python syntax, and provides Python run-time support.

If the Python code can be proted to CLPython, it gets compiled,
and you can call it much more directly from other Lisp code.
