How to add a library path to pythonpath ?

Thanks for the suggestion Pable.

However, I really need the $PYTHONPATH to include this additional library, so all Python scripts could use it.

In Windows I have defined PYTHONPATH as c:\views\cc_view\TS_svm_ts_tool\SVMInspector\lib\, and also in the Windows registry I have

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\version\PythonPath\ as C:\Python26\Lib;C:\Python26\DLLs;C:\views\cc_view\TS_svm_ts_tool\SVMInspector\lib\;C:\Python26\Lib\lib-tk;

However, even with all the above, the SVMInspecor modules are not found.

You have to add yout path to the list:

import sys

Jus simple to add the element on the list :)

I'm trying to add a library path to my pythonpath, but seems it is not accepted -

On Windows DOS window:


C:\>python -c "import sys ; print sys.path"
['', 'c:\\views\\cc_view\\TS_svm_ts_tool\\SVMInspector\\lib', 'C:\\WINDOWS\\syst
em32\\', 'C:\\Python26\\DLLs', 'C:\\Python26\\lib', 'C:\\Python26\\l
ib\\plat-win', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\\lib-tk', 'C:\\Python26', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\\
site-packages', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\\site-packages\\wx-2.8-msw-unicode']


On Windows cygwin:


$ python -c "import sys ; print sys.path"
['', '.:\\cygdrive\\c\\views\\cc_view\\TS_svm_ts_tool\\SVMInspector\\lib', 'C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\', 'c:\\Python26\\DLLs', 'c:\\Python26\\lib', 'c:\\Python26\\lib\\plat-win', 'c:\\Python26\\lib\\lib-tk', 'c:\\Python26', 'c:\\Python26\\lib\\site-packages', 'c:\\Python26\\lib\\site-packages\\wx-2.8-msw-unicode']


What am I doing wrong ?
