python - an eggs...


I have a python script/app that i'm dealing with. It uses Durus, which
installs as an egg.

I'm trying to figure out how to modify any of the underlying source files or
the egg, short of modifying the original source file, and then having to
reinstall the egg via "python setup.py install"...

I'm relatively new to python/egg(s), but I can't seem to find a way to
accomplish this via the 'net.

I've looked in the Install file, as well as the setup.py thinking that I
migt be able to find a way to simply build the app, and to have the required
scripts installed under the "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages" tree as the
other pyhon apps/scripts are....

The app I'm working with is Durus 3.7. I've got the tar.gz uncompressed, but
the only thing I get is an egg file, which gets installed/placed under the
"site-packages" dir.

Any help/pointers/etc.. would be helpful!!
