[Distutils] Minor issues
Mon Sep 11 05:20:01 2000
1) Why is the --formats list comma-separated and the --include-dirs and
--library-dirs lists not? They are separated by os.pathsep.
Well, at least its documented :)
2) The os.pathsep separator is not documented in the help text:
> python setup.py build_ext --help
--library-dirs (-L) directories to search for external C libraries
This should be:
--library-dirs (-L) colon-separated list of directories to search
for external C libraries
or whatever os.pathsep is on the current platform.
3) bdist_wininst does not seem to install data files and scripts.
If you execute "strings" with the .exe, you will only see Python module
And I did not found a file with the install log. The installer just
copied the files in the Python dir.
