how to find site-packages path

Hi,

I am using my own install script for my software and am looking for a
flawless way to figure out where python, and more specifically
site-packages is installed.

Any clue ?

Regards,

Philippe

You can take a look at how this is done in Lib/site.py.

Look for the bit of code that starts with

prefixes = [sys.prefix]
sitedir = None # make sure sitedir is initialized because of later 'del'
....

etc.

The flawless way would be to use distutils. In fact you shouldn't even
need your own install script--it should do most of the work for you.

can distutils install in any directory? for example, an application
which has its own modules should be completely isolated from the general
Python module namespace. how would you make distutils install in a
completely separate directory hierarchy and not touch any of the
site-packages directories or files?

it looked like that was impossible from the documentation which is why I
wrote my own installer.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
