DESCRIPTIONSnapPea is a program for creating and studying hyperbolic 3-manifolds. It is accessible via Python scripts as well as through a traditional graphical user interface.
Running snappea will invoke the GUI. Running snappea-console will invoke a Python console from which low-level operations can be performed.
Note that the SnapPea Python bindings require Python 2.1, since SnapPea does not yet support Python 2.2 or higher.
