Issue #105 closed
Mahmoud Hossam created an issue

I have installed Python 3.2 (32-bit) and pygame 1.9.2 on windows 7 using the installers on the website, but I get an ImportError when trying to access pygame's help inside the interpreter

    +1, I also have this error and was wondering if it was a bug in the distribution or my installation

    I have enabled scrap builds for Python 3.x on Windows in changeset d811a6f742d8. It passes the unit tests. Warning, though, scrap is buggy with binary data.

    Fix bytes decoding problem in example (refs #105)

    On Windows, the '\ufffd' unicode replacement character is not recognized. So, for the 'replace' decoding errors option, a UnicodeEncodingError exception is raised for non-ascii bytes. The 'ignore' errors option, though less informative, raises no exceptions.

    My concern regarding binary data in the clipboard was unfounded. It was a problem with pygame.examples.scrap_clipboard, not pygame.scrap. So please give scrap another try on Windows. If there are no more concerns I will close this issue.
