2.3.1 Installing on Unix, Linux, and Mac OSX

The source distribution should be uncompressed and unpacked as follows (for example):
gunzip pypedal-2.0.0rc4.tar.gz
tar xf pypedal-2.0.0rc4.tar.gz
Follow the instructions in the top-level directory for compilation and installation. Installation is usually as simple as:
python setup.py install

Important Tip

Just like all Python modules and packages, the PyPedal module can be invoked using either the "import PyPedal" form, or the "from PyPedal import ..." form. All of the code samples will assume that they have been preceded by statements such as:
>>> from PyPedal import <module-name>
A complete list of modules is provided in Chapter .
