PyComicsViewer - A Python Comics Viewer
=======================================

Dependencies
------------

* python 2.4 or newer
* python-gtk 2.4 or newer
* pil (Python Imaging Library) [optional]

Installation
------------

To install the viewer from sources you will
need, beside the run-time dependencies:

* python-dev
* c compiler

Installation uses the distutils module from python.

The installation can be tweaked in a couple of 
ways:
* '--install-script' controlls where the startup 
  script, pycomicsviewer.py, is installed
* '--install-lib' controlls where the python code
  and the compiled C modules are installed
* '--install-data' controlls the place where
  the data, the glade files and the images, are
  installed

Examples:

python setup.py install --prefix=/tmp/foo
==>
  pycomicsviewer.py -> /tmp/foo/bin/pycomicsviewer.py
  PyComicsViewer    -> /tmp/foo/lib/python-2.3/site-packages/PyComicsViewer
  glade & png's     -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer
  
python setup.py install --install-scripts=/tmp/foo \
  --install-lib=/tmp/foo --install-data=/tmp/foo
==>
  pycomicsviewer.py -> /tmp/foo/pycomicsviewer.py
  PyComicsViewer    -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer
  glade & png's     -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer

Starting
--------

To start the viewer, simply run the 'pycomicsviewer.py'. If you use
a binary distribution that hasn't been tweaked (uses the default
setup settings), the starting script should be in:

    /usr/bin/	        -- on Linux
    %PYTHON24%\scripts\ -- on Windows

IMPORTANT NOTE: Don't mistake the 'pycomicsviewer.py' with the 
                'PyComicsViewer.py'. They are different beasts 
                and only 'pycomicsviewer.py' can start the viewer.
