Python-LZO provides Python bindings for the LZO data compression library. You can access the LZO library from your Python scripts thereby compressing ordinary Python strings. LZO is a portable lossless data compression library written in ANSI C. It offers pretty fast compression and *very* fast decompression. Decompression requires no memory. In addition there are slower compression levels achieving a quite competitive compression ratio while still decompressing at this very high speed.
SPFPM (Simple Python Fixed-Point Module) is a Python module which provides basic facilities for manipulating (binary) fixed-point numbers. The number of fractional binary digits is tunable, allowing near-arbitrary precision arithmetic. Arithmetic and mathematical functions such as sqrt, exp, log, sin, and cos are available.
Micropolis is a city simulation game engine based on the original classic SimCity source code. Micropolis is based on the Tcl/Tk version of SimCity. It consists of the micropolis module, which is the engine recast as a C++ class; the cellengine module, which is a cellular automata machine engine; and the tileengine module, which is a Cairo based tile renderer. It is intended to be used with the OLPC's Sugar user interface environment, but layered so the core code is useful in other contexts.
Hasard is a pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) library. It includes multiple engines (algorithms): Park-Miller, Mersenne Twister, Linux device (/dev/urandom or /dev/random), and more. It has a simple but powerful API. For example, a PRNG seed can be generated using strong entropy (using a hardware random number generator like /dev/random on Linux). The library is written in C, and a Python binding is available. The word "hasard" is the French word for "randomness" or "chance".
