The ZOOM binding for Guido van Rossum's Python can be found at http://www.pobox.com/~asl2/software/PyZ3950/zoom.html
To give a flavour of the Python binding, here is ZOOM's equivalent of the ``Hello World'' program: a tiny Z39.50 client that fetches and displays the MARC record for Farlow & Brett Surman's The Complete Dinosaur from the Library of Congress.
from PyZ3950 import zoom conn = zoom.Connection ('z3950.loc.gov', 7090) conn.databaseName = 'Voyager' conn.preferredRecordSyntax = 'USMARC' query = zoom.Query ('CCL', 'isbn=0253333490') res = conn.search (query) print res  conn.close ()
We currently have the following implementations of the Python binding:
