where to put .pth file

Jim
I am trying to tell Python where it can find some modules it will need
when embedded in my app. The convenient way would be to plop a .pth
file somewhere Python can find it. I found that the doc is wrong when
it says this kind of filecan go anywhere on the python path. It is not
found if it goes into the python root dir, or python\lib -- the only
place I found it would work was in lib\site-packages.

So the next question is, how do I know where this dir is located? In
order to look in the Registry to find where Python is installed, I need
to know the version! There is a set of keys under Python24 and another
set under Python25 on my machine. That means I need to know what
version is installed before I can find out where its install dir is.
Bizarre.

So how do I find out what version is installed? The best way I came up
with so far is to ask Python for the value of sys.prefix. Trouble is,
when I issue a PyRun statement, it fires up 24, not 25, and gives me
the 24 prefix.

In short: how do I find the latest installed site-packages directory?

Hello, Everything started with me wanting to write a little command line php script that uses some gd functions. After a little research, I realized I need to unccomment the line in my php.ini that references the gd module. I did that, and still no gd (I get the error message at run time, that imagecreatefromjpeg() doesn't exist). At first I thought that I changed the wrong php.ini file, even though I changed the one in c:\windows, which...

Ok, I have a nice iface, I have a (hopefully) good user authentication, I have a DB up-and-running, and I have PHP 4.3.4 (yeah, I know, I will update...). What I need is a logging utility. And the question is: where to keep the logs? We (me and my buddy) have written everything from scratch (including sessions support) - in a quest to learn something useful. Now we need to decide where to keep our logs?

Hi, I am developing an application that needs to store some machine-specific settings. The application is going to be published on the network in order to keep the clients on the latest version. Because of this, I am unable to store these settings in the App.Config file, as this gets updated every time the application does, and there doesn't appear to be a way of preventing this. Most of my application settings are kept in the...

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