python - an eggs...

hey dietz...

if you give me your email i'll correspond with you directly..
but yeah, you are a jerk. in that you make assumptions that may/may not be
correct, but you appear to have a holier than thou mentality...

i did download the setuptools tar file.... i read through the txt files that
came with it... i couldn't fing anything that stated exactly how to get the
easy_install app...

i'm fully aware of what the site states, as i read it. you ignorant slut
assume that i didn't.

in my mind, the docs on the installation could use a little more
clarification, especially for those who aren't quite sure of how python
might work, and so don't want to risk screwing up a system.

but, as far as the setuptools site goes, can you point to the section that
states, to install (setuptools/easy_install), you do x:
 -download this file
 -run this command...

 i found the files to download... i couldn't find the command to run, (at
least is wasn't apparent to me.)

so, anyway, thanks!

peace

Really? Did you? Here your third question:

-3rd question.. in searching the 'net, it appears that i have to download
setuptools in order to get easy_install. Am I missing something here, or is
this correct?

And here something I posted yesterday:

"""
setuptools is a package that installs & creates eggs. You find it
documented here:

http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools

It comes with a few commandline-scripts after installation, such as

easy_install
"""

So, can you explain me how "actually had read what you'd posted" goes
together with the above question that you asked after my post?

And just putting "easy_install setuptools" into the google search bar on my
browser yields this

http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall

as fourth or so link. Besides the fact that the link I gave you to the
setuptools features above link in the third paragraph.

So I think calling you ignorant for not reading what I posted and not
reading what pointers I gave you is well justified. If that makes _me_ a
jerk - I'm ok with that then.

Diez
