Also try out the interactive python session (go to start->programs->python->Python (command line))

that allows you to type python code and have it be run right away (thats why you saw those ">>> " before, that is the input line that the interactive session uses)


The GUI one works the same way if you don't open a file. That's why I was getting confused.


Yes, IDLE has an interactive session too - its the exact same ones as the "Python (Command Line)" <- only that doesn't have all the extra text editing stuff Wink

Oh, and by the way, what's the best (easiest to use/quickest download) Python Compiler?


The "official" Python - aka CPython, availble here: http://www.python.org/download/

You want THIS specific version tho (2.4.3 win32 installer): http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.4.3/python-2.4.3.msi

Oh, and its not really called a "compiler" per se, its an interperator (python isn't compiled - just like TI-Basic isn't compiled)


Can interpreters still make exes, or does everyone that wants to run the program need to have an interpreter?

EDIT: And what is a .msi file? Is it just like an executable?


Python, by itself, cannot create a .exe, but using py2exe you can make a win32 executable (the python script that you code is cross-platform, hence the reason it doesn't compile)

an .msi file is a microsoft installer file - it needs .NET framework 1.1 if I remember correctly (it is an executable tho, just doulbe click it Wink )
Where can I get py2exe?
