    It was some 2.5 vesion... I think 2.5.4. They have it on the web site. However, it does not work with newer versions of windows, which is why many people end up using 2.7.x

    A few of the things they do use libraries like NumPy. If you want to learn how to add the livraries, fine. However, another suggestion I have seen is to download the free verison of Anaconda. That is just Python with about 200 libraries pre-installed. http://continuum.io/downloads They also have commercial versions with commercial libraries, but the free one will cover everything the class uses.

    Thanks for getting back. I am looking for the one where there is an IDLE shell and a script text editor with a .py tag. How would I get that?

    That comes with any Python package. The IDE is part of it. IDLE is both a script text editor and a runtime shell.

    When you say "that comes with it" are you referring to the Anaconda that comes with script and IDLE shell?

    All official Python distributions have IDLE. So does Anaconda. Anaconda also has NumPy. The distribution MIT made for their class came with NumPy for answering a couple of questions.

    Hi Thanks for your response. Do you have the link for the specific distribution that MIT made for the class.

    It is on the class pages somewhere, but does not work with newer versions of windows.
