Windows users will probably need to change the (Unix-based) path of the output file in the pyro script. For example, assuming the directory "C:\temp" exists on your system, open the pyro script in a text editor and change "/tmp/pyro.txt" (in line 11) to "C:/temp/pyro.txt". Note that a forward slash, not a backslash, is used after the drive designation.


You can download the pyro script and the whattodo.dat data file for this hack from oreilly.com
