I'm still confused because makeexe doesn't appear to be that different from
PYC. They both rely on Hosting.PythonCompiler, and while they pass a
different number of arguments to the PythonCompiler, the difference doesn't
seem significant based on my perusal of the PythonCompiler.cs source code.
I'm still not clear on what it means to supply multiple source files to the
PythonCompiler. Can anyone explain what happens to the other source files?
If imports of those modules are supposed to work directly from the resulting
exe, without the original .py files, I haven't been able to get that to
work. Hmm, take that back. I just tried with makeexe.py and it works as
expected - normal python import without having to have the original .py file
available. So I guess the real question is why this isn't working in PYC.
Sounds like a bug to me...
Thanks, Mark and Michael. Now I'm much closer to the solution I was hoping
