AVPython: Python Language Support for ArcView GIS
This is only a summary; the full home page, including application
binaries, project history, and source code, may be found at avpython.sourceforge.net.
AVPython embeds the Python programming language within ArcView GIS
3.x. By doing this, we can break through most of the barriers to
interoperability, scalability, and extensibility that the Avenue
developer faces when trying to build a modern application. Unlike Avenue,
Python is a real programming language suitable for large-scale
collaborative development, yet like Avenue it is easy to use, and very
easy to read.
If you have ever wanted to write your own classes or extend existing
classes, or wished you could integrate your ArcView 3.x app with other
system components through TCP/IP, XML, or COM, or more easily share code
between projects, then AVPython is for you.

AVPython is not for ArcGIS 8.x / 9.x. If you're using ArcGIS, you
don't need Python in order to integrate with the rest of your system
and network resources. However, with ArcGIS as with other platforms,
Python is an excellent glue language. For that reason, it is the
preferred scripting language for the ArcGIS 9.x model builder.
