    most linux these days already have a python interpreter
    installed so i think the simplest (simplistic) method
    would be send the *.py or *.pyc file/s .
    ( i follow this way when i give little apps to my friends )

    i you want to ensure that the host machine has
    python ( or the right relase of it ) you can write
    a bash script that
    1) install python
    2) install your program [this part can be done in python itself]


    bye

    Maybe youre right, but the applicatiobn runs under embedded linux, so the size
    of your applikation is another argument :-(
