Installing Babel
================

Prerequisites
-------------

 * Python 2.3 or later (2.4 or later is recommended)
 * Optional: setuptools 0.6b1 or later
 * Optional: pytz (strongly recommended for real time-zone support)


Installation
------------

Once you've downloaded and unpacked a Babel source release, enter the
directory where the archive was unpacked, and run:

  $ python setup.py install

Note that you may need administrator/root privileges for this step, as
this command will by default attempt to install Babel to the Python
site-packages directory on your system.

For advanced options, please refer to the easy_install and/or the distutils
documentation:
