packaging programs

P: n/a
Hello,

What is the preferred way of packaging python programs? I know a bit about py2exe
(windows) and freeze (linux), but is there a way to package something if you assume
that they have python installed? For example, if you assume that they have Python
2.4, but don't have scipy/numpy/matplotlib, is there something which will locally
package these modules to distribute with the program? What are the options here?
Are there any good docs for this?

thanks,

Brian Blais

setuptools. You can then distribute your application as an egg, which
basically is a zip-file.
