To the best of my knowledge, the Python stuff is completely abandoned. The guy who was developing it hasn't touched it in 6 years, in fact, I'm not sure he's even still on the mailing list. Actually, I'm kinda surprised that the stuff is still in CVS, I thought James was going to remove it since nobody keeps it up to date anyway.

So, unless you're interested in updating it and maintaining it, I'd call it dead.

Hello,

I just tried to compile Python module from the CVS repository.
I'm using FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE, gcc version 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305 and Python Python 2.4.4.

These are the error messages:
tn5250-python.c: In function `tn5250_DisplayBuffer_del':
tn5250-python.c:888: error: too few arguments to function `tn5250_dbuffer_del'
tn5250-python.c: In function `tn5250_DisplayBuffer_ins':

tn5250-python.c: In function `tn5250_Field_getattr':

tn5250-python.c:2961: error: structure has no member named `FCW'
tn5250-python.c:2961: error: structure has no member named `FCW'



For example:
In tn5250_DisplayBuffer_del, there's a call:
tn5250_dbuffer_del (self->dbuffer, shiftcount);

but the function is declared:
void tn5250_dbuffer_del (Tn5250DBuffer * This, int fieldid, int shiftcount);


Is somebody at the moment working on the module?
Does somebody USE the module?

Thanks,
Chris
