Package Description

Windows python scripts aren't recognised as executables, so alot of the ros build logic will fail when trying to call python scripts because they utilise the bash logic at the top of the script. This remedies the problem by creating a batch script for each that calls the relevant python script. It also provides various other scripts, utilities, launchers and dependency targets for setting up the runtime.

section Overview

Windows python scripts aren't recognised as executables, so alot of the ros build logic will fail when trying to call python scripts because they utilise the bash logic at the top of the script.

This remedies the problem by wrapping each build/bin python script with either exe's or batch files.

section how The Fugly

Had problems getting standardised modules like py2exe and pyInstaller working with ros. So I quickly hacked a self-describing executable that does the job.

Installation simply copies this exe with the appropriate name into build/bin.

Batch scripts are alot simpler, but throw up an annoying prompt whenever you ctrl-c asking for conformation of termination. You also need to set roslaunch scripts to use the shell when running the subprocess.
