Extra Bits ----------
ActivePython releases also include the following packages:
- a Windows "debug" package: debug-built binaries for ActivePython users building debug versions of their binary Python extensions - ActivePython24.chm: an MS compiled help collection of the full ActivePython documentation set. Linux users of applications such as xCHM might find this useful. This package is installed by default on Windows.
These packages are available from: ftp://ftp.activestate.com/ActivePython/etc/
On behalf of the team at ActiveState, Thanks, and enjoy!
