Installation

This command should install islpy:

pip install islpy

You may need to run this with sudo. If you don’t already have pip, run this beforehand:

curl -O https://raw.github.com/pypa/pip/master/contrib/get-pip.py
python get-pip.py

For a more manual installation, download the source, unpack it, and say:

python setup.py install

You may also clone its git repository:

git clone --recursive http://git.tiker.net/trees/islpy.git
git clone --recursive git://github.com/inducer/islpy

Wiki and FAQ

A wiki page is also available, where install instructions and an FAQ will grow over time.

For a mailing list, please consider using the isl list until they tell us to get lost.

Note

  • isl and imath, which islpy depends on, are also licensed under the MIT license.
  • GMP, which used to be a dependency of isl and thus islpy, is no longer required. (but building against it can optionally be requested)

Relation with isl’s C interface

Nearly all of the bindings to isl are auto-generated, using the following rules:

  • Follow PEP 8.
  • Expose the underlying object-oriented structure.
  • Remove the isl_ and ISL_ prefixes from data types, macros and function names, replace them with Python namespaces.
  • A method isl_printer_print_set would thus become islpy.Printer.print_set().

User-visible Changes

Version 2016.2

Note

This version is currently in development and can be obtained from islpy’s version control.

  • Update for isl 0.17
  • Add make_zero_and_vars()

Version 2016.1.1

  • Add make_zero_and_vars()
  • Do not turn on small-integer optimization by default (to avoid build trouble on old compilers)

Version 2016.1

  • Update for isl 0.16

Version 2014.2.1

  • islpy now avoids using 2to3 for Python 3 compatibility.

Version 2014.2

  • A large number of previously unavailable functions are now exposed.
  • Sebastian Pop’s imath support has been merged into the version of isl that ships with islpy. This means that unless a user specifically requests a build against GMP, islpy is (a) entirely self-contained and depends only on a C++ compiler and (b) is entirely MIT-licensed by default.

Version 2014.1

  • Many classes are now picklable.

  • isl’s handling of integer’s has changed, forcing islpy to make incompatible changes as well.

    Now islpy.Val is used to represent all numbers going into and out of islpy. gmpy is no longer a dependency of islpy. The following rules apply for this interface change:

    • You can pass (up to long int-sized) integers to methods of isl objects without manual conversion to islpy.Val. For larger numbers, you need to convert manually for now.

    • All numbers returned from islpy will be of type islpy.Val. If they are integers, they can be converted

    • Since upstream made the decision to make isl_XXX_do_something_val not always semantically equivalent to isl_XXX_do_something, the old functions were removed.

      One example of this is isl_aff_get_constant, which returned just the constant, and isl_aff_get_constant_val, which returns the constant divided by the islpy.Aff’s denominator as a rational value.

Version 2011.3

Version 2011.2

  • Switch to copy-by-default semantics.
  • A few changes in Python-side functionality.
  • Automatic type promotion in ‘self’ argument.

Version 2011.1

  • Initial release.
