what is the PythonWin

I downloaded Python 5.1 for windows so I could run a program.

I have to do the following:

In PythonWin, select Tools | COM MakePy utility | Microsoft Speech
Object Library 5.1).

I can't find PythonWin .. Does anybody know what this is. I have the
Python shell gui but no "PythonWin".

THanks.

PythonWin is a separate project by Mark Hammond providing win32 extensions for
python.

I believe there's confusion afoot.

Pythonwin <URL: http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonWin is a
Python-oriented editor for Windows. Mark bundles Pythonwin
with a couple of other equally-intriguing pieces to make
pywin32. When I read, "win32 extensions for python", I think
of what Mark labels "win32api". I'm reasonably certain that,
Thanks for the explaination, Cameron.
Yeah, there was a confusion from my end.
I hope the OP, got what he needed from the URL tough.

PythonWin is (or was) part of the win32 extension library for
Python. It is a separate download -- unless you downloaded the
ActiveState Windows build of Python. The ActiveState build includes the
win32 libraries and "PythonWin" (but lacks a few of the, otherwise
standard, encryption stuff -- which can be copied from a comparable
[version-wise] python.org release).
Note that it is no longer true that ActivePython does not include the
standard encryption stuff (namely OpenSSL support for the socket module
and the hashlib libraries). As of ActivePython 2.5.0.0 full SSL support
is available.

Cheers,
