Description Tim Cera 2010-01-24 01:39:04 UTC
Pydap is a pure Python library implementing the Data Access Protocol, also known as DODS or OPeNDAP. You can use Pydap as a client to access hundreds of scientific datasets in a transparent and efficient way through the internet; or as a server to easily distribute your data from a variety of formats.

Hi Tim, 

How different is this new pydap from the dev-python/dap from the main portage tree?

Comment 2 Tim Cera 2010-01-30 03:42:18 UTC

Upstream changed the name: is the 3.x version of pydap
and is the 2.x version of dap

Might could do some fancy MY_P variables to make pydap an upgrade of dap, but it seemed easier to just make a new name.

What is funny is that I have a vague recollection that before it was called 'dap' he called it 'pydap' and if so it has come full circle.

Kindest regards,
