Me and my cousin are making a python text-editor.
and im having trouble getting our program to work with py2exe and im not sure what the problem is.
I set everything up like the py2exe website tell you to and it all went together perfectly fine.
but when i try to run my programs exe the screen goes black for a second and then is normal, and the program never starts. so i start it in command prompt to get some output.
this is the error i got:

C:\Python25\dist>Puma-Pad.exe
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Puma-Pad.py", line 92, in <module>
NameError: name 'quit' is not defined

C:\Python25\dist>

so i went and looked through the code and line 92 is this:

filemenu = Menu(menu)
menu.add_cascade(label="File", menu=filemenu)
filemenu.add_command(label="New", command=new)
filemenu.add_command(label="Open", command=open1)
filemenu.add_command(label="Save", state=DISABLED)
filemenu.add_command(label="Save As", command = saveas1)
filemenu.add_command(label="Exit", command=quit)

the last line above is 92
so i thought quit was the command to exit?
so i tried it with the command being exit

filemenu = Menu(menu)
menu.add_cascade(label="File", menu=filemenu)
filemenu.add_command(label="New", command=new)
filemenu.add_command(label="Open", command=open1)
filemenu.add_command(label="Save", state=DISABLED)
filemenu.add_command(label="Save As", command = saveas1)
filemenu.add_command(label="Exit", command=exit)

and this is what happens

C:\Documents and Settings\cody\My Documents\python\Puma-pad\dist>Puma-Pad
Traceback (most recent call last):

    filemenu.add_command(label="Exit", command=exit)
NameError: name 'exit' is not defined

im really stumped about this, even though its a pretty noob question, i have no idea what command im supposed to use for it to just kill the program.
thx for the help
