 One other thing the windows binaries are missing is the Numeric or numpy Python
 packages. You can easily install this separately and it will allow you to use
 the pygame "surfarray" module. This module is optional, so there is no need
-to do this. There are binary installers from the Numeric download page.

- however both are not entirely compatible.  Instead of numpy you can also use PixelArray, which

 This package includes almost of the dependencies required for pygame
 (SDL, SDL_image, etc.), but you need PyObjC 1.2 or later, and may
-also want to get Numeric, numpy and PyOpenGL.

 To build self-contained pygame applications, you should use py2app.
 There is an example in:
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
