hi to all folks here,

i am learning Python, just finished a book and i am starting to write
I just want to ask, is the "correct" way to deploy my programs to other
computers, the .pyc files ??

I now that with the "-m compileall ." switch can compile a .py file
into bytecodes. So i suppose that if Python has to run a .pyc file, it
will load and execute it faster. And if i have some "sensitive" data in
my source, like passwords (and the source of cource!) they will be more
secure in a compiled file.

Is that correct ?

Thanks a lot for any help!
