I'm running Python 3.1 on Vista and I can't figure out how to add my own
directory to sys.path.
The docs suggest that I can either add it to the PYTHONPATH environment
variable or to the PythonPath key in the registry. However, PYTHONPATH
doesn't exist, and updating the registry key has no effect (and in any case
the contents aren't the same as sys.path).
So where does sys.path get its value from, and how do I change it?
