Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A 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 preinstalled. http://continuum.io/downloads They also have commercial versions with commercial libraries, but the free one will cover everything the class uses.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That comes with any Python package. The IDE is part of it. IDLE is both a script text editor and a runtime shell.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All 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.
