variable for the python interpreter location

    Is there a way I can use the python interpreter location as part of the path to the Main Module in a Pydev Launch?

    It looks like there are a lot of variables that I can use such as: ${workspace_loc} but what I really need is the path to the interpreter. The use case for this is that I'm trying to run a .py file that is in the PythonDir/Scripts folder.

    I can set it up as an explicit link to C:\Python25\Scripts\ for now, but I'd love to be able to do something like:


    so that it works with any python interpreter location and on other platforms.

    Or is there a better way to do what I'm trying to do?

      Is this the right place to ask this question? Or is there a better spot for it? ie. maybe in a the feature request section?

        That's the correct place to ask it... (sorry for the delay)

        Unfortunately, there's no such variable available (so, please, add a feature request for it: )

        So, for now either you have to use one of the available ones (and make it relative to those) or you have to leave it fixed.

          Awesome, thanks for the response Fabio! You're doing an amazing job with PyDev!

          I'll add it as a feature request and I may spend some time trying to figure out where those variables live in Eclipse.
