I will try to do so, but like you, I think my time is better
spent transitioning to Numpy.

Incidentally, I am now using the MacPython distro--thanks for
pointing me toward that. I also got Numeric 23.8 to work well
with MacPython, including the optimized vecLib framework. I
got the harebrained idea to try compiling and installing
Numeric 23.8 using the setup.py and customize.py files from
Numeric 24.x, since they seem to get the Apple veclib stuff
compiled in properly, especially the optimized matrix math
libs. The one tweak I had to make was in setup.py, where I
pointed it to the new vecLib in:

Agreed. I am looking forward to the first official release of
numpy. In the meantime, I will experiment with the Beta version.

Thanks again,
