I'd like to bundle up a Python package (specifically, Pmw). One thing
that's bothering me is that most Python packages include byte-code
compiled files as well as the .py sources.
Should I bother generating .pyc/.pyo files, or should I leave the files
Also, the Pmw files have no configure process, etc. The normal
installation seems to be just to install the whole Pmw tree into one's
Python module tree (<pkg>/lib/python2.0/site-packages/, say). (An ideal
might even be to extract Pmw directly into site-packages, but I'm not sure
that that's possible with our pkgsrc system.)
How do I know which version of Python is installed, so that I can find the
"I probably don't know what I'm talking about." --firstname.lastname@example.org
