Re: editing sys.path ?

Never Mind! Apparently it's just a plain old string and can be edited with
no problem. With a name prefixed with sys, who'da thunk it?

Hi Daryl:

Is there any way I can edit sys.path? It comes out a kloodge, with the same
directory present multiple times, depending on case and long or short
I've used PYTHONPATH to add a directory (which doesn't end up in front), but
I'd really like to clean up sys.path entirely. Is it possible? I'm on Win95,
using Python 1.5.2 and Idle.
