pythonw documentation?

P: n/a
I was going to ask how to a program can tell whether it was started by
python.exe or pythonw.exe, but after some experimentation I noticed
that sys.stdin.fileno() is -1 in the latter case.

However on a more general note, the only references to pythonw that I
could find in the Python 2.5 documentation are in the Macintosh
section. Have I overlooked something, or is this a deficiency that
should be addressed?

You are right that it currently isn't documented (although it is
mentioned in PCbuild/readme.txt).

When you submit a report to sf.net/projects/python, please make a
recommendation what text you'd like to see in what place. It would
be best if you could provide a patch, but somebody will certainly
be able to work a plain-text paragraph into a TeX patch.

Martin
