Dear reader,

I give it another try with more explanation. If it remains unanswered I 
will assume that such an implementation does not exist.

Adaptive Simulated Annealing (ASA) is a freely available code for 
simulated annealing, see http://www.ingber.com/#ASA.

In 2007, Georg Holzmann was asking this list if there is an 
implementation of that powerful code within SciPy, see 
http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/scipy-user/2007-November/014549.html .

The responses back then were negative, suggesting Georg to wrap it 
himself and referencing to swig.org.

I was wondering if the state of that issue, python wrapper for the ASA 
code, changed in the last 4.5 years. And if not, is swig.org still the 
best place to look for starting a wrapper myself?

I am aware that there is a Matlab wrapper for ASA, with is +/- 
up-to-date (Feb 2011), see http://ssakata.sdf.org/software/ . I don't 
know if this would help to create a wrapper for Python.

Many thanks,
