    Python extension

    Just trying to get an idea of the interest levels before I write it- would anyone use this?

    (I am referring to the Python programming language)

    What are the advantages of Python over Lua?

    Re: Python extension

    it isn't a bad thing to have more language options available to users; there's probably quite a few MMF users that vastly prefer python over lua. some people may want to use one language for the advantages it has over the other

    i probably wouldn't use it immediately, but i would definitely look into using it later on

    I'm interested. I use Python in Poser and it has saved me lots of time.
    The more MMF develops more people will use it so I think a Python extension definitely will have a place on the extension list.

    Re: Python extension

    I would like to pick up Python, see what it's capable of, and tying it into MMF2 would be a nice way to learn.

    Of course, I'd prefer that you spent you're time on OINC rather than this, since there is Lua as an alternative.

    Re: Python extension

    I would agree to making a python extension, as it is used quite a lot in various applications. It's quite rare in games (EVE Online and Civilization IV are the only ones I know of, and they both use the "stackless" variant), but common in other applications.

    Lua is popular as a game scripting language, e.g. Supreme Commander, Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War, Company of Heroes, Farcry and Crysis among others use it, but we already have a lua extension. MMF2 is even listed on the lua page because of it
