Python on OS/2

What is Python?

An interpreted, object oriented, scripting language. See the Python home page to learn more about Python.

Porting to OS/2

I have used Eberhard Mattes' EMX package for all my ports to OS/2. EMX includes the gcc compilers and a runtime environment that emulates most Unix/Posix library APIs. The EMX Runtime package (v0.9d fix03 or later) required to run these ports is available from the Hobbes OS/2 software archive.

Python 2.4.4 port to OS/2

Python 2.4.4 was released on October 18, 2006. (updated 1/01/07)

Python 2.3.5 port to OS/2

Python 2.3.5 was released on January 25, 2005. (updated 04/04/05)

NOTE: I am no longer in a position to support any of my OS/2 ports or software. The software packages will stay available from this site for the time being but will be removed at some point in the future. 19Jan2017


Most credit has to go to the porters of older releases of Python: Jeff Rush (v1.5.2 and earlier - IBM Visual Age C++ compiler) and Andrew Zabolotny (v1.5.2 - EMX+gcc). Without their efforts, I wouldn't have released anything.

Other software I've released
