Are Python programs possible on Macs?
I know that Python scripts can be compiled on Macs using MacPython, but can you develop a Python program that runs on a Mac w/out Python (like you can on Windows using py2exe)? I tried searching for an answer on Yahoo, but only found sites relating to installing Python on Macs. Thanks!

Well, if the computer is running Mac OS X, it comes with the standard Python (not MacPython) installed.
In Mac OS X 10.2 the version of Python installed is 2.2. I think earlier versions have 2.1.x.

Actually, I'm asking about Python scripted programs that can run on Macs w/out the Python interpreter (forgot to mention that--sorry). In Windows, you can accomplish this by compiling your scripts into an .exe file using py2exe. Is there something similar for Macs?

Not to my knowledge, no.
Again, this wouldn't be nessessary on Mac OS X (since Python comes with every copy), but it would be with Mac OS 9.
