mechanize installation instructions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOTE: This file describes the old-fashioned install.
I now recommend using EasyInstall instead.
See the web page for EasyInstall instructions (included here as
README.html).
If you use EasyInstall, you should ignore the rest of this file.
Dependencies
~~~~~~~~~~~~
See the web page for the version of Python required (included here as
README.html).
See setup.py for the required Python packages.
Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~
To install the package, run the following command:
python setup.py build
then (with appropriate permissions)
python setup.py easy_install --no-deps .
Alternatively, just copy the whole mechanize directory into a directory
on your Python path (eg. unix: /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages,
Windows: C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages). Only copy the mechanize
directory that's inside the distributed tarball / zip archive, not the
entire mechanize-x.x.x directory!
To run the tests (none of which access the network), run the following
command:
python test.py
This runs the tests against the source files extracted from the package.
For help on command line options:
python test.py --help
To run the functional tests (which DO access the network), run the
following command:
python functional_tests.py
