Hi Timothy,

If the <command interpreter="python">command.py args...</command> tag is
used in your tool config, the command line will be assembled as:

    python /absolute/path/to/directory/containing/tool.xml/command.py args...

In this case, the interpreter (python) is expected to be found on the
$PATH.

If no interpreter is specified, i.e. <command>binary args...</command>
then `binary` is expected to be found on the $PATH.

Hope this helps,
--nate
