Description : collection of Python modules implementing CAPTCHAs
This is the PyCAPTCHA package, a collection of Python modules
implementing CAPTCHAs: automated tests that humans should pass,
but current computer programs can't. These tests are often
used for security.
See http://www.captcha.net for more information and examples.
This project was started because the CIA project, written in
Python, needed a CAPTCHA to automate its user creation process
safely. All existing implementations the author could find were
written in Java or for the .NET framework, so a simple Python
alternative was needed.
Included are several example programs:
- simple_example.py is a bare-bones example that just generates
and displays an image.
- http_example.py is a longer example that uses BaseHTTPServer
to simulate a CAPTCHA's use in a web environment. Running this
example and connecting to it from your web browser is a quick
and easy way to see PyCAPTCHA in action
- modpython_example.py is a version of http_example that runs
from an Apache server equipped with a properly configured
- Python 2.2.1 or later
- the Python Imaging Library, required for visual CAPTCHAs
