Acknowledgments

F2PY is a LGPL'd Python package and command line tool developed and maintained by Pearu Peterson (me).

Many people have contributed to the F2PY project in terms of interest, encouragement, suggestions, criticism, bug reports, code contributions, and keeping me busy with developing F2PY. For all that I thank

(This list may not be complete. Please forgive me if I have left you out and let me know, I'll add your name.)

Special thanks are due to ...

Eric Jones - he and Travis O. are responsible for starting the scipy_distutils project that allowed to move most of the platform and compiler specific codes out from F2PY. This simplified maintaining the F2PY project considerably.

Joaquim R R A Martins - he made possible for me to test F2PY on IRIX64 platform. He also presented our paper about F2PY in the 9th Python Conference that I planned to attend but had to cancel in very last minutes.

Travis Oliphant - his knowledge and experience on Numerical Python C/API has been invaluable in early development of the F2PY program. His major contributions are call-back mechanism and copying N-D arrays of arbitrary types.

Todd Miller - he is responsible for Numarray support in F2PY.

Thanks!
