      <h1>nose: a discovery-based unittest extension.</h1>

      <p>nose provides an alternate test discovery and running process for
        unittest, one that is intended to mimic the behavior of py.test as much
        as is reasonably possible without resorting to too much magic.

      <p class="note">
        On most UNIX-like systems, you'll probably need to run these commands
        as root or using sudo.

      <p>Install nose using setuptools:
        <pre>easy_install nose</pre>

      <p>Or, if you don't have setuptools installed, use the download link at
      right to download the source package, and install in the normal fashion:
      Ungzip and untar the source package, cd to the new directory, and:

        <pre>python setup.py install</pre>

      <p>If you have an older version of setuptools installed, you may see an
        error like this:
          <tt>The required version of setuptools (>=0.6c5) is not available, and
          can't be installed while this script is running. Please install
          a more recent version first.</tt>
        In that case, you'll need to update your setuptools install first,
        either by running:

        <pre>easy_install -U setuptools</pre>


        <pre>python ez_setup.py</pre>
