  Description     : interactive environment for Python

 PythonToolkit (PTK) is an interactive environment for Python. It was
 originally designed to provide a Python based environment similar to
 Matlab for scientists and engineers when used together with the numpy,
 scipy and matplotlib Python packages. However it can also be used as a
 general purpose interactive Python environment especially for
 interactive gui programming.
 It is built around a console window and simple Python source editor
 and a Tool plugin system so that extra features and support for Python
 packages can be easily added.
 Main features:
  * Console window with support for multiple Python interpreters
  * Engines are external processes so that each engine is completely
    separated from the others and the PTK interface.
  * Interactively program with different GUI toolkits (wxPython,
    TkInter, pyGTK, pyQT4 and PySide).
  * Builtin Python debugger integrated with tools and editor.
  * Object auto-completions and calltips.
  * Multi-line command editing.
  * Command history (previous/next and search for partially typed
  * Simple editor for code testing and scripting or everyday work.
  * Set, edit and clear debugger breakpoints via the editor.
  * A matlab style namespace/workspace browser tool that can be extended
    to support new types and classes.
  * A path manager tool to easily change the current working directory
    and manage the Python search paths.
  * A Python object inspector tool showing object docstring, code, and
  * GUI viewers for Python data types.
  * Python object importer/exporter system to save and load data easily.
