Very Old Sparky Releases

If you are running an older operating system and the current Sparky release does not work, you can try an old version of Sparky.

The following Sparky versions date from 1999 - 2001 and use Python 1.5.2 for extensions.

Python Language for Sparky Extensions

You will need Python 1.5.2 if you wish to run or write Sparky extensions for the very old Sparky releases. It will not work with newer versions of Python. You can get a version I have compiled and tested with Sparky from the table below, or you can get it in source form from the Python web page
