[issue2385] run_setup can fail if the setup script uses __file__
report at bugs.python.org
Tue Mar 18 11:24:34 CET 2008
New submission from Tarek Ziadé <ziade.tarek at gmail.com>:
When calling run_setup, the execfile does not set the __file__ global
variable, that is often used in setup.py modules (for instance to load a
text file from the package to be used in the long_description)
This patch adds this global variable so it does not fail.
No test provided (distutils would need a test_core.py).
I could work on some tests, but the previous test_* files I have added
are not in yet, so i'd rather wait for that before proposing new tests
