Dear Users,

in case you haven't heard of eGenix PyRun yet, this is a new simple
to install Python runtime that can be used independently of a system
installed Python version.

See http://www.egenix.com/products/python/PyRun/ for details.

We're using this runtime in our mxODBC Connect Server product and
also internally as virtualenv replacement.

To make it easy to install eGenix PyRun, we've now added a script
to our download server which lets you install PyRun just as easy
as virtualenv (but without its dependency on a possible system
installation of Python):


Per default, the script will download the PyRun binary for the target
platform and install distribute as well as pip in the given target

Usage is simple:

install-pyrun targetdir

Try install-pyrun --help for a list of options.

Running the script will leave you with a targetdir setup with bin/,
lib/ and include/ dir as runtime environment. You can then immediately
start using PyRun via bin/pyrun or install additional software using

The installation script is brand new and we'd appreciate any feedback
you can provide to enhance it.
