pyxe is a small executable that will run python scripts on a machine
that doesn't have Python installed. Example: You have the following
hello.py:

def main():
    print "Hello, World"

You can create a binary distribution using 

pyxe /build hello

This will create a directory ./hello which contains all you need. Copy
all files to a host system and run the app using

pyxe hello

That's it. Note that your app must define a 

def main():

which is the main procedure to start from pyxe. There is one known
restriction, sys.argv[] doesn't get properly setup in pyxe
environment. You can fix this yourself: 

import sys
try:
    import cfrompy
    sys.argv = cfrompy.GetSysArgv()
except ImportError:
    assert sys.argv

Easy, eh? Requirements

- On the developer machine, you must have python23 installed.
- On the target machine, no requirements.
- Tested on Windows NT and Windows 2000. You are on your own with
other systems (such as XP, 03 etc.)

pyxe is free for any purpose whatsoever.
