Distutils: setup script for binary files

Hi. I want to create setup script, that will install compiled extension module
plus few binaries the extension module depends on.

For example: I have package X:

_x_.dll ( or so )
some other dll's ( so's ) _x_.dll depends on.

I took a look on Python documentation,
http://docs.python.org/dist/describing-extensions.html, but it only
describes how to create
setup script for extension module from source files.

I think, I can treat _x_.dll as it was regular Python script. My
problem is, that on Linux
I should put "some other so's" in some directory, program loader can find.
How can I do this?

Any help is appreciated.

I learnt that distutils can be used to package python modules and packages. Fine it does that well. Suppose I am writing an python application (not package or module), and suppose that I am using Linux. Where should I install the python source files and bin scripts and data in my /usr directory? Should the python (.py) files go into /usr/lib/pythonXX/site-packages or /usr/lib/myapp or /usr/share/myapp ?

Ok, I am struggling with this setup.py. My python script happens to use the mxBase library, specifically the mx.DateTime package. That's the only "third party" package I use. I've gone through Nutshell book and the distutils docs, but am not getting the syntax probably.. I always get this at the end of the distutils command ( python setup.py py2exe ): The following modules appear to be missing <-- pasted directly

Some time ago, I got the idea that I wanted to build image resources from vector graphic originals, instead of marshalling hundreds of tiny little icon images by hand. I wrote "BuildImage" to do this for me, and so far, it works very well, so I'm trying to make it easier to use and available to more developers. There is a brief (and somewhat dated) tutorial explaining what BuildImage itself does at:

This is silly. How do I access data files I've installed with distutils?

I've googled, and looked in the python reference. I must be blind if the

Hi folks, I'm looking at packaging a project I'm working on using distutils. The project is for Windows and contains a COM server which needs registration, so the installer needs to be a little more complicated than usual. Looking at the options for the bdist_wininst command to distutils, I see it's possible to specify --install-script=<myinstallscript> which ought to do the trick. But to use this, myinstallscript itself must first be...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
