Python Launcher.app on OS X

I am very confused about the current state of Python on OS X 10.5.
Looks like Apple ships with 2.5.1 and that is also the latest
installer for OS 10.5. The notes on the wiki page found here:

http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard

Say:

Mac OS X 10.5.x (Leopard) comes with the 2.5.1 Python distribution pre-
installed, with an integrated Python Launcher.app

[...]

It is recommended that you delete the newly installed Python
Launcher.app, because it is already present inside the system
Python.framework. If you have installed Apple's developer tools (Xcode
et al), it is recommended that you delete the newly installed Build
Applet.app, because it is already present in /Developer/Applications/
Utilities/MacPython 2.5.

okay... for the life of me i do not see any Python Launcher.app and i
just installed OS X 10.5 (running 10.5.6 on intel) .... and i also
installed the dev kit.

Where the heck is this application?

best,

kp

Hi kp,
I don't seem to have any such beast on my system except for the one
in /Applications/MacPython 2.5/. Perhaps the documentation is mistaken?

Good call, you are 100% correct, with the footnote that Versions in
that path should be capitalized.

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/Resources

So how does this effect the install instructions found on the link:

http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard

do you trash that when you do an install on OS X? I am so hesitant to
delete anything that resides in /System

Looks like the instructions found on

http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard

have been updated. Who ever did that: Thanks!
