Installation Requirements
----------------------------
``Pdfbook`` uses setuptools for installation. Thus you need
either
* network access, so the install script will automatically download
and install setuptools if they are not already installed
or
* the correct version of setuptools preinstalled using the
`EasyInstall installation instructions`__. Those instructions also
have tips for dealing with firewalls as well as how to manually
download and install setuptools.

Installation
-------------------------
Install ``pdfbook`` by just running::
python ./setup.py install
Custom Installation Locations
------------------------------
``pdfbook`` is just a single script (aka Python program). So you can
copy it where ever you want (maybe fixing the first line). But it's
easier to just use::
# install to /usr/local/bin
python ./setup.py install --prefix /usr/local
# install to your Home directory (~/bin)
python ./setup.py install --home ~
Please mind: This effects also the installation of pfPDf (and
setuptools) if they are not already installed.
For more information about Custom Installation Locations please refer
to the `Custom Installation Locations Instructions`__ before
installing ``pdfbook``.
