9 Reference


9.1 Installing modules: the install command family

The install command ensures that the build commands have been run and then runs the subcommands install_lib, install_data and install_scripts.


9.1.1 install_data

This command installs all data files provided with the distribution.


9.1.2 install_scripts

This command installs all (Python) scripts in the distribution.


9.2 Creating a source distribution: the sdist command

** fragment moved down from above: needs context! **

The manifest template commands are:
Command  Description 
include pat1 pat2 ... include all files matching any of the listed patterns
exclude pat1 pat2 ... exclude all files matching any of the listed patterns
recursive-include dir pat1 pat2 ... include all files under dir matching any of the listed patterns
recursive-exclude dir pat1 pat2 ... exclude all files under dir matching any of the listed patterns
global-include pat1 pat2 ... include all files anywhere in the source tree matching
& any of the listed patterns
global-exclude pat1 pat2 ... exclude all files anywhere in the source tree matching
& any of the listed patterns
prune dir exclude all files under dir
graft dir include all files under dir
The patterns here are Unix-style ``glob'' patterns: * matches any sequence of regular filename characters, ? matches any single regular filename character, and [range] matches any of the characters in range (e.g., a-z, a-zA-Z, a-f0-9_.). The definition of ``regular filename character'' is platform-specific: on Unix it is anything except slash; on Windows anything except backslash or colon; on MacOS anything except colon.

** Windows and MacOS support not there yet **
