    Could Python do this?


    Currently looking into coding this in Delphi.

    http://forums.devshed.com/t120831/s.html

    Would Python be an easier / quicker alternative?

    Cheers,

    Quick answer, yes Python can do this. And you'd probably have more fun and get it done quicker than in Delphi!

    The drawback being that not everything you need is built-in. You'll need to download and install Pythons COM extensions in the form of Mark Hammonds Win32 all.

    Also, if you want to make stand alone applications you'll need py2exe which wraps the interpreter and and need modules in a single stand alone file.
