[2.5.1 + CGI] Which interpreter and files?


G

Gilles

Hello

I'd like to use the Mongoose basic web server with Python which can
call scripts through CGI.

I have a coupole of questions:

1. Mongoose must be told in the shebang file where to locate the
interpreter, but ActivePython 2.5.1 comes with fours files that look
like the interpreter (actually, two files, since the other two have
the same size so they are probably left overs):
============================
01/05/2007 18:01 24.064 python.exe
01/05/2007 18:01 24.064 python25.exe
01/05/2007 18:01 24.576 pythonw.exe
01/05/2007 18:01 24.576 pythonw25.exe
============================

2. Which files and directories do I really need and must provide, and
which can I do without?
============================

The ones with the -w tag are designed for Windows apps that are going
to bring up a GUI and don't want a console. The python[w]25.exe ones
will be in case you have multiple Pythons installed and want to
explicitly call for version 2.5. You probably want python.exe, but
python25.exe will work too.
