I say chaps,
I've got a "real world, real time" situation, with sensors and things to control, which I can do with GPIO and, perhaps, Python to pull the strings, but some heavy maths (multi-variable optimisation) in between. Rather than spend a lot of time writing Python code, I thought I might pull in some Mathematica stuff. How to interface Mathematica to GPIO? Or, pass variables to and from Python?
And another thing, is it possible to archive the Mathematica installation just in case it stops being part of the standard R-Pi kit?
