Hi Joel,

Sorry that Python scripting is not currently included in the iXAFS
installation or easily available on Mac OS X.   I'll work on this and
post it as soon as possible.   I am just getting back to having a Mac
with a build system, so it might take me a little time.

For windows, there is python wrapper included in the distribution, but
you have to explicitly install it (as python is not typically
installed on windows), and it's a little out-dated, being only
available for Python2.5.  You can install the extension from:

Again, I'll try to update both the Windows and Mac wrappers within the
next week.
