2.50 Alpha 1 Python Part 3

In Part 2, we saw how windows are built from building blocks called Panels in Blender 2.5. You can lay out a panel and get data from the user. The next step is to actually do something with the data. For that, Blender 2.5 lets you define operators. Once you create an operator, it works anywhere within Blender. In this tutorial, we will create a simple operator, using the simple_operator.py template, one of a number of pre-designed templates that makes it easy for you to just add the functionality you need.
