How do I install Python on cygwin? I downloaded the Python-2.7.2.tar and uncompressed it. What do I do with it now? I tried running install-sh but it says no input file specified

With the Cygwin setup, you can select packages to install (even on an existing installation of cygwin). You can select Python, for example.

Ah yes that was easy... just ran setup again and 'checked' Python. Thanks! – Michael Sep 21 '11 at 10:18
