Hi all,

  I am writing a CGI app. I was trying to find out a way to change the #! 
line in the CGI scripts for different platforms using an install script. 
Like as I am developing it on windows so the line says

         #!c:\python22\python.exe

Now on linux it may be /usr/bin/python or /usr/local/bin/python and on 
windows also it may be anywhere the user has installed it. So is there any 
way to find out the path for that. I tried

          distutils.sysconfig.get_config_var(...)

with "exec_prefix" and "prefix". But on linux it showed me /usr only ? So is 
there any way to find the path for the Installed Python executable to 
substitute it in my CGI scripts?

TIA and Kind Regards
Vivek Kumar
