Thx for the tip.

I am referring more to the use of PyInstaller or py2exe. Packages that
create exe files that basically have your py script and a small py
interpreter all rolled up into one. This way py does not need to be
installed on a system to execute a py script. I am being advised that python
is installed onto systems (windows) it should not be on. I am new to python
and these types of packages and am not too sure how dumb a question this
really is.. but can these packages bleed out files, dll, exe ect. to systems
they are run on?
