Python command line error


Hi All,

I've installed Python 2.5 on a number of machines but on one I'm
having problems with the CLI.
If I fire up the 'cmd' dos box and type 'python' I get a line of
gibberish and it locks up the cli, if I run the 'command' dos box I
get a few lines of garbage and it crashes/closes the dos box.

I've tried a re-install, checked my system paths etc but I can't get
it to work, it works ok for running scripts from a dbl click in
explorer for instance and from Idle, I just can't run scripts from the
command line.

I have installed -
xp pro sp2
Python25
wxPython2.8 unicode
PIL
numpy

any clues to what's causing this behavior?
tia,
Mick.

What kind of gibberish? Actual garbage characters and the like?

Anyway, maybe try running which; this one should be easy to get
going:

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/which.htm

But I have never used it, I use the one in this package:

http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

It expects 'python.exe' or whatever, not just 'python', I would
expect the gnuwin32 version to behave similarly.

Thanks Max, I just worked it out just before I read your post...doh!
I have cygwin on this machine also and the cygwin/bin path was before
the Python25 path so it was playing up, I put the Python25 path before
the cygwin stuff and it's fixed.
It's always something simple!
Cheers,
Mick.
