  • validate.xml as python dict 
  • replaced parsing the xml with generated python dict
  • parse Kount's validation xml to python dict and use this dict in the package to avoid parsing. New XML_DICT must be generated if the xml file 'validate.xml' is changed



  • Sphinx files /auto generate documentation/, package files 
  • Documentation Compilation

Before starting, you first need to install Sphinx, which is done very easily using easy_install or pip command in a command shell:

pip install sphinx – upgrade

In order to compile the documentation, under linux type:

make html


make latex

and under windows, type:

make.bat html

This command will analyze the files in the source/ directory and create the HTML files into the directory _build/html/ or build/html depending on your configuration file.

There are many more possible outputs. Type make without argument to get help. For example, to build a PDF version, type:

make latexpdf
