Great. Thanks Michael. I'll keep pounding away then.
I've looked at the FAQ's and unless I've overlooked something, is there
a preferred directory that I can store my Python scripts. I would like
to have the ability to place the scripts somewhere where I have the
ability to execute them from any directory that I happen to be in. E.G.
If I make my *.py scripts executable and place them in /usr/local/bin I
can execute them from any directory as a normal user just by name, from
eterm or a console shell, instead of having to put in the full path to
>>> import sys
['', '/usr/lib/python23.zip', '/usr/lib/python2.3',
