[Numpy-discussion] Fixed-point arithemetic...any solution yet?

Hello everybody.

I've seen this question arise sometimes on the list, but don't know if
something has "happened" yet or not. I mean, any solution feasible to use
more or less right out of the box?

I'm just a hardware engineer, so it would be difficult for me to create my
own class for this, since my knowledge of python/numpy is very limited, and,
just don't have the time/knowledge to be more than a simple user of the
language, not a developer.

I have just come across this:
http://www.dilloneng.com/documents/downloads/demodel/ but haven't used it
yet. I'll give it a try and see how it works and come back to the list to
report somehow. But, is there any "official" plans for this within the numpy
developers? Is there any code around that may be used? I just need to test
my code with fixed point arithmetic (I'm modelling hardware....)

Thanks for the good work to all the Python/Numpy developers (and all the
projects related, matplotlib and so on....) and for the possiblity of
freeing from matlab!!! I'm determined to do research with as many free
software design tools as possible....though this fixed-point arithmetic
issue is still a chain!
