Mac OSX binary missing setup.py

I wanted to test MatPlotLib for use in a GIS system for which I help develop the GUI in wxPython. I’m working on a Mac Intel OSX 10.4.11 system.

The installation instructions for OS X are very sketchy and there is no readme in the binary. But AFAICT, there ought to be a setup.py file in the fat egg distribution folder. However, there is no such beast. There is only pylab.py and that isn’t a distribution build utility.

Since I’m not a member of the list, I’d appreciate it if someone could email me directly.

Thanks

I'm running on OSX 10.5.

The installation process for me was the following two commands:
$ easy_install matplotlib
$ easy_install numpy

That's it. You don't need to manually download the egg. You don't
need to root around in the egg. Just run easy_install. It retrieves the
egg and installs it in the correct location.

You shouldn't ever find a setup.py file in a binary distribution. It
is there for building purposes, hence should be with the source
distributions.
