I'm trying to follow this guide:

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW...s_for_XBMC

however, it mentions nothing about where i'm supposed to put the
file and if i need an xml file to go along with it.

so... how is it done?

a script is (typically) packaged up as an add-on. see http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on_development

thanks.
i found out that if i make a dir called 'script.myscript' with an
addon.xml pointing to an addon.py, it shows up correctly
in xbmc's "programs" menu, the way i wanted it to.
so this answers my own question.
