I'd like to do something like this:
Basically, I'm invoking the easy_install command from a script. Where I
specify a number ofn arguments to the --find-links option, some of which
will be web-servers and at least one will be a local filesystem path, or
possibly a network path un UNC format. 
It seems to work just fine when I do not provide a --find-links option
(in this case it just picks up the defaults from distutils.cfg), when I
use the option all I get is:
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 20, in ?
    result = pyproxy.requireEgg( eggspec , True, hosts )
y", line 141, in requireEgg
py", line 626, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
py", line 524, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req)  # XXX put more info here
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: myproject==trunk-99
Can somebody confirm the correct way to do this? For example do I use
Windows or UNIX slashes? What character must be used to seperate
multiple URLs? 
I'm using setuptools 0.6c9 on Windows32
