    python23.dll...


    Is there anyway to make a python program totally standalone? Because it seems like im not actually writing all of the code, that the program wasnt written 100% by me, if i still need the python23.dll

    i am currently using py2exe. Does anyone know about a program that compiles python code to make it fully standalone?

    The first question I always ask when people wonder about that is: why?

    If it's for "code hiding", then forget it. Things turned into executables via py2exe are fairly trivially decompiled with decompyle.

    In general, python was never really designed with a mind to create standalone executables. It was meant to run via an interpreter. If that means that you have to package the interpreter with it and then wrap a script around your program to call it, so be it.

    tell your friend that he is an idiot. How does your program requiring a DLL file mean you didn't write your script?

    lol 2k is right, your friend is a dummy. You'll have a hard time finding programs which are only one file anyway.. If your on windows, go to your program files dir and take a look. I'd Just zip it up and send it to him

    Mark.
