Python Notes

Trying to install py.test in order to get stuff tested in trying to convert Byakhee over to python, and to do that a few links were useful.

1) told me the basics for installing pip, which is needed to install py.test.

However, that lead to other problems, because the Windows 7 64 bit doesn't register the program the way that the easy_install installer thinks it should.

2) contains instructions on getting Python installed properly. All I had to do was to copy the python script into a file (which I named and run it.

Step 2 let me install the easy_install installer from step 1, which let me install pip. And now, that let me install py.test.
