PyDaylight 1.0 supports Daylight toolkits v4.81 and newer. If you are using an older toolkit version you should try one of the older PyDaylight distributions.
PyDaylight is a rapid application development library based on the Daylight chemical informatics toolkits (http://www.daylight.com/). Researchers enjoy it because it lets them implement and test new chemical algorithms in less than half the time of traditional methods. Software developers appreciate the use of high-level constructs such as object-oriented design, iterators and exceptions, and the easy integration with other Python libraries. Support staff enjoy it for its readability and its robust implementation that precludes most categories of silent errors, including type mismatches and memory leaks.
See the MUG 2000 presentation about PyDaylight for many examples of what it can do and why you should use it.
