I have uploaded an updated port of Python 2.1.1 to the incoming
directories of the Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu) and LEO
(http://archiv.leo.org/) OS/2 software archives.
The update contains the following changes:-
- os.spawnv() and os.spawnve() use the native EMX routines rather than
emulate them with fork();
- pythonpm.exe is now a real PM app with behaviour somewhat akin to the
pythonw.exe in the Windows distribution.
The distributed archives are:
python-2.1.1-os2emx-bin-010812.zip (binary installation package, 3.0MB)
python-2.1.1-os2emx-src-010812.zip (source patches and makefiles, 106kB)
For those who already have the 010805 distribution, you only need to get
Note that the update archive has not been uploaded to Hobbes or LEO. It
is available at http://www.andymac.org/python.html, along with the above
archives are if you can't find them at Hobbes or LEO.
OS/2 users enjoy!
