[Mac OSX] TextWrangler "run" command not working properly

F

Fabio

Hi to all,
I have troubles with TextWrangler "run" command in the "shebang" (#!)
menu.
I am on MacOSX 10.6.7.
I have the "built-in" Python2.5 which comes installed by "mother Apple".
Then I installed Python2.6, and left 2.5 untouched (I was suggested to
leave it on the system, since "something might need it").

I ran the "Update Shell Profile.command", and now if I launch "python"
in the terminal it happily launches the 2.6 version.
Then I installed some libraries (scipy and matplotlib) on this newer 2.6
version.
They work, and everything is fine.

Then, I started to use TexWrangler, and I wanted to use the "shebang"
menu, and "run" command.
I have the "#! first line" pointing to the 2.6 version.
It works fine, as long as I don't import the libraries, in which case it
casts an error saying:

ImportError: No module named scipy

Maybe for some reason it points to the old 2.5 version.
But I might be wrong and the problem is another...

I copy here the first lines in the terminal window if i give the "run in
terminal" command

Any clue?

I'm not a python expert, but you might trying running 'print sys.path' inside your script and run that from TextWrangler to see where it's looking for modules.

Hello Fabio You have two versions of 2.6 on your system.

I have the "built-in" Python2.5 which comes installed by "mother Apple".


My OSX comes with 2.3, 2.5, and 2.6. :) These are under:

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/
^^^^^^^^^

the ones you installed are under:

/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/

I can reproduce this problem on my system, because /usr/bin/python2.6 points to the system version. There is an easy solution:

#!/usr/bin/env python

will work, or,

#!/usr/local/bin/python

it's better to use the former, as it will work even as you change versions, etc... You should avoid using the shebang with a *specific* python version. just use #!/usr/bin/env python

Hi Ernst, Hi Brian,
Thank you for your answers!
With the "#!/usr/bin/env python" shebang line now it works!
I also had more insights running "print sys.path".

I still have to understand how comes, even with this "env trick"
TextWrangler isn't able to "find the libraries" if I run a script "in
TextWrangler". It only works fine if I use the "Run in Terminal" method.
Do you have more details about how TextWrangler manages these commands?
Which are its defalut locations?

Cheers,

Fabio
