This development release is intended mainly for Unix users (especially Linux), although other users can use it too if they are willing to compile the source code. Eventually I hope to provide ready-to-run Macintosh and Windows versions of SnapPea 3.0.
Make sure you have Python on your computer. To test for Python on a Unix machine, type "python" at the prompt; if Python is installed, an interactive session will begin (type control-D to quit). If you don’t have Python, go to the Python web site and download a copy.
Download the SnapPeaPython package that’s right for your computer and operating system.
Linux on PC Download SnapPeaPython.zip. The SnapPeaPython directory contains the platform-independent SnapPea 3.0 files, along with the Linux-specific library SnapPeaC.so.
Windows (Precompiled SnapPeaC not yet available.)
Macintosh (Precompiled SnapPeaC not yet available.)
All others should download the source code. Compiling the source code is easiest on Unix machines, and should be possible on Windows and Macintosh too if you know what you’re doing.
SnapPea 3.0 is now ready to use. Please see the instructions for using the graphical user interface or the scripting interface.
