Gary ...

The chunk of Python code in IS a pure Python client library for GPSD. That code doesn't depend on libgps.a at all -- it makes straight TCP calls to the GPSD daemon. It's not well documented, and I'm pretty sure there's a bug with WATCH_RAW, but the code does work, since I've been using it for more than a year.

All I want to do is easily process the  files to produce the corresponding .py files, without having to do it manually and then maintain my own fork.

There is no Pure Python client part of GPS srouce tree.

You could try installing on a supported system, and then just copying
the Python parts, but some things will not work w/o libgps.a.

What is your problem with libgps.a?

Yeah, very annoying.

We don't know who this frostnov is, and he has never tlaked to us, that
we know if.  But he is the guy pusing that old mess to PyPi.
