One I made is...

the NSIS install. I made it portable, by just copying the files off to my usb drive after install, and then uninstalling. Also I had to create a launch batch file for the compilier itself, as it stores settings in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (Just windows position, but I am a bit touchy), to keep the settings out of the registry. I will be replacing that batch with my Registry Rapper program, once the HKLM registry support gets added.

What?

You want to change a .bat into a .exe?
We use NSIS which is a programming language.

It's just the way you keep asking every one to e-mail you for a certain program, like you dont want the community to know about it. And yes I am a developer see www.portasoft.org

He seems to be a little bit self-pleasing

Hi Steve,

I have asked him something similar here and got a self-pleasing answer - "it is to complicated, and i can send you an atachment of the program" Sad
In an other thread he stoop to describe his obscure modifications.

you may check

you may check http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/movpy/
however, it is not a freeware anymore.
and I believe, most of the programming languages can be portable. So far as I know, http://www.realbasic.com, http://www.freebasic.net, http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/

app request: portable python

As I have said in the previous post, there is a portable python. But it is not free, and the used to be free one does not supports sourec file with Chinese characters( even in the comment), and I think it does not support characters other than english ones. So could anyone coin a new, free python launcher?
thanx

Ruby

I read a small article on Ruby. Sounds interesting. Although I don't know too much about such things. How does Ruby compare as a programming language? Next is it capable of been portable?
I would like to start looking at learning something like this for a few ideas I have.

If you only want to learn a

If you only want to learn a script languge and/or to resolve some prblem during your work, you may choose python/lua/ruby randomly, I think they are all easy. But please keep away from perl Acute
Howewer if you have such app that embeds script language, you do not have much choice. As for me, I use www.blender.org( BTW, it is a portalbe 3D app on win/linux/mac), and it use python only currently, and I love python than ruby.

Online Ruby Interpreter & Tutorial

There is an online ruby interpreter and tutorial (using that online ruby interpreter )
Here: http://tryruby.hobix.com/
However, I am still looking for an online or portable python. If anyone finds one (besides the MovablePython or MovableInterpreter - someone already provided links - then please email me at koldfyre@gmail.com)

Portable Python by copying Python files

You can just copy your entire pyhton installation directory (like C:\Programs\Python25) on your usb stick. You will also need python25.dll and
msvcr71.dll in the same directory as python.exe. You'll usually find these dll-files in C:\WINNT\System32.

You can run idle by drag & drop idle.pyw (from Python25\Lib\idlelib) onto pythonw.exe (or python.exe if you need a console window for error messages Wink ).
It goes a little bit more easly if you put a text file in the same directory as python.exe having the folling content:
@echo off
start pythonw.exe Lib/idlelib/idle.pyw %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
Call the file something like idle.bat and you'll be fine.

I used Python25 on Win2k.
Good Luck Smile

Python Portable 2.4.4 & 2.5

I had done a portable version of 2.4.3 (changed it to 2.4.4 with the latest update) and 2.5, but never took them any further. I recently gave them to Ryan to have a play with.

If you do not know how to make the bat file mentioned above, there already is one in the lib/idlelib folder under idle.bat :).

I will have a look at releasing them both as beta's eventually.

Python Portable 2.4.4

Hi.

I've been searching for a portable python, and came across this thread. I've checked your homepage, but there is no link to download the files from there (yea, I know they are "in development"). Is it possible to send me the 2.4.4 Python Portable for a test?

My main reason is that I need to setup a USB stick with a webserver and mod_python, so I need a python interpreter...

thanks

Feedback

I haven't taken them any further since I sent them to Ryan. I presume he is busy with life and such. They are a bit away from a beta post. But if you wish to test it then by all means get in touch via my website which as you already know, is linked in my profile.

Please no more posts from here on regarding sending of files etc. It clutters the threads etc. I will happily oblige this once.

What me, Life?

Seriously, I've been a bit busy with PHP scripts like Lilina News Aggregator and building it's new website.
Can you send the links again please, as I seem to have lost the email.
