package = re.split(":",fileName) package = re.split("/",package[len(package) - 1]) package = re.split(".py",package[len(package) - 1]) package = package[0]

def getSetupName(): global setupName setupName = raw_input( "Enter name of setup file (or for default): ") if(setupName == ''): setupName = "setup.py" try: fp = open(setupName) fp.close() flag = raw_input( "Setup file exists! Rewrite (0=no; else )? ") if(flag == "1"): getSetupName() except IOError: setupName = setupName


fp = open(setupName,"w") temp = """from distutils.core import setup import py2exe setup(name = "%s", scripts = ["%s"], )""" % (package,fileName) fp.write(temp) fp.close()

sys.argv.append("py2exe") execfile(setupName)

fp = open(setupName,"w") temp = "" fp.write(temp) fp.close()
