Python Standard Library

You can use much of the Python standard library in Ignition.

 

Learn more about the python standard library at http://www.python.org/doc/2.5/lib/lib.html

 

Note that the "normal" implementation of Python that programmers may be used to is actually called "CPython" that is - the Python engine is implemented in C. In Ignition we use Jython - Python implemented in Java. The language itself is identical, but there are some important differences. One important difference is that in Jython you can access all of the Java standard library. Another important difference is that the standard library is different than what you'd find in the normal python standard library. You can read more about these differences here: http://www.jython.org/docs/library/indexprogress.html
