Numeric module download site needed
I am trying to run a Python sample that contains the line
from Numeric import *
The error basically tells me to get the module called Numeric. Can somebody please tell me where to download it from. I am using Python24 on a Windows XP box.

What is Numeric supposed to do?
I've never heard of such a module, and if you are running a sample, it's very possible this is a module that was written to go with the sample(s). What is 'Numeric' supposed to do? Are you trying to find a module that converts strings to numbers? I've been explicitly told by a programmer that no such module exists, but I did find this once:
By Francois Granger <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Convert numbers to words
This module is based on the program "roman" from "Dive Into Python",
a free Python book for experienced programmers.
Visit <http://diveintopython.org/> for the latest version.
With help from Pedro Rodriguez
Is this what you are trying to do? If you find 'Numeric' let me know, it sounds interesting!

It's a numeric array manipulation extension.

Thank you very much, that's exactly it! Numeric has been upgraded for Python24 and works well with the OpenGL sample I am working on.
