We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

How do I extract the downloaded documentation on Windows?

Sometimes, when you download the documentation package to a Windows machine using a web browser, the file extension of the saved file ends up being .EXE. This is a mistake; the extension should be .TGZ.

Simply rename the downloaded file to have the .TGZ extension, and WinZip will be able to handle it. (If your copy of WinZip doesn’t, get a newer one from http://www.winzip.com.)
