get_py2exe_datafiles fix

I was having trouble with py2exe not getting the datafiles that it needed. I noticed someone else got it to work by copying all the files, but losing the directory structure. I tried that, but I still had missing datafiles at runtime.

This function will return everything needed for py2exe to work correctly. Instead of returning one tuple, it returns a list of tuples, so the use changes a little bit, but at least it works.

def get_py2exe_datafiles():

outdirname = 'matplotlibdata'
mplfiles = []

for root, dirs, files in os.walk(get_data_path()):
    py2exe_files = []
   
    # Append root to each file so py2exe can find them

    for file in files:
        py2exe_files.append(os.sep.join([root, file]))
   
    if len(py2exe_files) > 0:
        py2exe_root = root[len(get_data_path()+os.sep):]
       
        if len(py2exe_root) > 0:
            mplfiles.append((os.sep.join([outdirname, py2exe_root]), py2exe_files))
        else:
            # Don't do a join for the root directory
            mplfiles.append((outdirname, py2exe_files))

return mplfiles

Sorry for not submitting as a patch: I haven’t quite figured out how to do that yet.

Dear Tim,

I checked in a similar patch from Tocer a couple days ago. Does your version do anything different? Does the version in svn work for you?

(Sorry, I don't really use Windows or py2exe.)

I haven’t tried the svn version yet, but it looks like it does basically the same thing as my version. The only thing different with mine I think is that if there are empty directories, I don’t add them to the list.
