[Distutils] script_name and script_args
Mon, 28 Aug 2000 22:01:45 -0400
Hi all --
I've just tweaked the Distribution class and 'setup()' function a bit so
that you can pass 'script_name' (sys.argv) and 'script_args'
(sys.argv[1:]) in as keyword args to 'setup()'. Obviously this would
never be used in the "canonical" case of a setup script run by the user
from the command-line, but it's a handy back door for whatever trickery
Paul is doing in PyFort. (Auto-generated setup scripts, indeed! Well,
as long as m4 isn't involved...)
Now we just have to deal with Amos' dist-bot needs, and that'll be that
for Distutils 0.9.2. Marching ever onwards...
