Hello,
I am rather new to this list. But I am interested to learn here, how to
best interact with Excel for I/O and manipulation of scientific data.

I watched the RExcel demonstration video at:
http://rcom.univie.ac.at/RExcelDemo/

I am really astonished how well the two programs where integrated.

Does something similar exist for Python?

Thanks in advance and regards,
Timmie

Chris - thanks for mentioning us!

We've actually just finished putting together an 5-minute video giving a very brief overview of an upcoming feature that allows you to manipulate matrices in the spreadsheet grid, in a similar way to the RExcel is used in the video Tim links to.  The underlying calculation engine is numpy.  If you're interested, it's here: <http://www.resolversystems.com/screencasts/numpy/>


Cheers,

I knew of Resolver One.
I discovered it a year or so ago.
The only thing that kept me back was:
* crashes with early versions when importing large data
* the lack of connection to the powerful numeric modules like scipy/numpy

I am definitely interested!
And that you publish a video means that you have made considerable progress with IronClad, isn't it?

I would also love to have rpy2 tested with Resolver...

The potential I see in this application when it matures:
* everybody knows spreadsheets
* no need for a extra gui
* powerful scriptability with python

Please keep us posted!

Regards,
Timmie
