easy install or pip ``py``
-----------------------------

Both `Distribute`_ and setuptools_ provide the ``easy_install``
installation tool with which you can type into a command line window::

    easy_install -U py

to install the latest release of the py lib.  The ``-U`` switch
will trigger an upgrade if you already have an older version installed.

.. note::
    
   As of version 1.4 py does not contain py.test anymore - you
   need to install the new `pytest`_ distribution.

Working from version control or a tarball
-----------------------------------------------

To follow development or start experiments, checkout the
complete code and documentation source with mercurial_::

    hg clone https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/py

Development takes place on the 'trunk' branch.

You can also go to the python package index and
download and unpack a TAR file::
