Hi Soumen,

You could try running the Python Package Manager that we are developing
on sourceforge.

There isn't a release yet but we have implemented two buttons inside
the program for 'Examples' and 'Documentation'.

What they do is go off and find any documentation files or example
directories for third party modules that are installed on the system.

Then, if found, they will open a web browser on any documentation
or examples directories.

In the spirit of open source you could give it a try....

svn co https://pythonpkgmgr.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pythonpkgmgr

Any feedback is welcome..
