$ python setup.py bdist_wheel usage: setup.py [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...] or: setup.py --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...] or: setup.py --help-commands or: setup.py cmd --help error: invalid command 'bdist_wheel' $ pip --version pip 1.5.6 from /usr/local/lib/python3.4/site-packages (python 3.4) $ python -c "import setuptools; print(setuptools.__version__)" 2.1 $ python --version Python 3.4.1 $ which python /usr/local/bin/python
