24# ../IDLE.app/Contents/MacOS/Python{-32} is symlinked to
25#       ..Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/m.n
26#                   /Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python{-32}
27#       which is the Python interpreter executable
28#
29# The flow of control is as follows:
30# 1. IDLE.app is launched which starts python running the IDLE script
31# 2. IDLE script exports
32#       PYTHONEXECUTABLE = .../IDLE.app/Contents/MacOS/Python{-32}
33#           (the symlink to the framework python)
34# 3. IDLE script alters sys.argv and uses os.execve to replace itself with
35#       idlemain.py running under the symlinked python.
36#       This is the magic step.
37# 4. During interpreter initialization, because PYTHONEXECUTABLE is defined,
38#    sys.executable may get set to an unuseful value.
39#
40# (Note that the IDLE script and the setting of PYTHONEXECUTABLE is
41#  generated automatically by bundlebuilder in the Python 2.x build.
42#  Also, IDLE invoked via command line, i.e. bin/idle, bypasses all of
43#  this.)
44#
45# Now fix up the execution environment before importing idlelib.
46
47# Reset sys.executable to its normal value, the actual path of
48# the interpreter in the framework, by following the symlink
49# exported in PYTHONEXECUTABLE.

60# by IDLE have a normal sys.executable.
