SYNOPSIS

pkginfo [options] path ...

DESCRIPTION

Print the metadata for one or more Python package distributions.

Each 'path' entry can be one of the following:

- a source distribution: in this case, 'path' should point to an existing archive file (.tar.gz, .tar.bz2, or .zip) as generated by 'setup.py sdist'.

- a binary distribution: in this case, 'path' should point to an existing archive file (.egg)

- a "develop" checkout: in this case, 'path' should point to a directory initialized via 'setup.py develop' (under setuptools).

- an installed package: in this case, 'path' should be the importable name of the package.
