Executable?

I am pretty new to python and I was wondering how and if you could make a stand alone program with python, like a .exe or do I have to run all of my scripts with IDLE.

    : I am pretty new to python and I was wondering how and if you could make a stand alone program with python, like a .exe or do I have to run all of my scripts with IDLE.

    Actually, IDLE is just a Python script too. All scripts, including IDLE, are run through the Python interpreter (python.exe or pythonw.exe). There are a couple of projects out there that achieve what you are asking by effectively bundling up your scripts with the interpreter into an executable. From what I've read, there isn't much if any performance gain since the code is still interpreted, but you do end up with a single file.

    Here's one that also has references to others: http://www.computronix.com/utilities.shtml

    I've never used any of these so I can't offer more specific advice.
