I assume you mean distutils? If so here is the official help description:

     The main package for the Python Module Distribution Utilities.

Normally used from a setup script as

        from distutils.core import setup

        setup (...)

So it's a set of tools for distributing your finished code
modules so that other people can easily install them on
their computer.

Now, what else do you need to know?
The more specific the question the more specific the answer...
