Python modules involved include: ReportLab (+ svglib) and PYMSSQL (MS SQL Python extension module).(Also Wxpython, MatPlotLib, and the Python Imaging Library). This report outlines the facilities and types of tests conducted, both new and old data data entry/analysis systems, describes the contents of the software package produced as well as how the scripts work.
