    Hello,

    I have recompiled pyacad 0.42 from source for python 2.2.1 and intellicad 2000. Although there seemed no documentation on how to build the missing "_ads.dll", I was able to deduce by examining the source that this was probably "python_ic2000.dll" renamed. I also had to make a small change to ads_module.c to get it to initialize properly under windoze (the linker script drops the init_ads_module function from dll). But it might have something to do with my migrating the project files to MSVC 7.x.

    Now that bit is done, I was wondering if you had a test suite/demonstrations that I could use to determine if everything is OK. The documentation discusses the architecture from a concept view, but there are no real-world examples to try, or even a screen shot of what is possible between python-acad.

    Is this project still being maintained? Also, it may be worthwhile to examine a Linux port using the new Linux-Intellicad.

    Thanks,
