For running the CPodTools the minimal requirements are:
- Mac OSX 10.4
- Python 2.4
OSX Tiger comes with Python 2.3. To update, download the Universal Python 2.4 package or better from http://pythonmac.org/. Mounting the disk image, double clicking the installer package and following the instructions worked seamlessly for me.
Running the scripts on Windows
I tried to write the python scripts platform independent. If you have Python 2.4 or better installed on Windows, running the scripts in a commandline window should work. I haven't tried it yet. Be aware though, that all line endings are considered to be UNIX format: \n.
