  • Pip version: 8.1.2
  • Python version: 2.7
  • Operating System: Linux (RHEL 6)

Description:

for the package py_salesforce, after installing, when I run "pip show py_salesforce", the package metadata is not shown (nothing is shown), and when I check the exit status "echo $?" the exit status is 1.

What I've run:

[root@rhel65x64-0 ~]# pip show py_salesforce
[root@rhel65x64-0 ~]# echo $?
1

That's because py_salesforce installs itself as py-salesforce.
pip show py-salesforce works but pip install py_salesforce should also
