You do need .NET Framework 2.0 to run this. It's pretty painless to download and install. You don't need IronPython.
Thanks to the newest IronPython release for making this possible! When I run
ironpythonconsole cleanPath.py, the code runs, and it also generates cleanPath.exe without even being asked to. Until now, though, that .exe didn't actually work. In IronPython 1.0 Beta 2, however, released just Wednesday, it works great! I do need to put IronPython.dll in my directory before I compile... other than that, it's so simple, even a DBA can do it.
