I'm trying to convert some date/times to UTC, which I thought would be dead simple in Python - batteries included, right? Well, it would be simple except that Python (2.6) doesn't include any tzinfo classes. No problem, a quick search turns up python-dateutil which should do exactly what I need.
The problem is that I need to install it on Windows. I was able to upack the .tar.gz2 distribution using 7-zip, but now I'm left with a collection of files and no guidance on how to proceed. When I try to run setup.py I get the error "No module named setuptools".
If dateutil is missing install it via:
pip install python-dateutil
Or on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install python-dateutil
Why didn't someone tell me I was being a total noob? All I had to do was copy the
dateutil directory to someplace in my Python path, and it was good to go.
