Yesterday, I tossed together a little package for installing readline into the Python distribution included with OS X.

Subsequently, I received an email from a developer that indicated they were having problems with the installation of said module.


It should "just work".

As it turns out, the July developer tools includes the readline.framework, but it lacks headers and, as such, it isn't possible to build the module.

The August patch to the July developer tools-- available via ADC-- contains the headers as well as an entirely new build of the readline framework.

So -- if you don't have it, get the August dev tools patch. It was also confirmed that a binary of the readline module for python built against the August dev tools provided framework will not work against the July provided framework.

Just an FYI....
