This is a completely foreign thing to me, so, forgive my "Noob-ness"
I'm so embarassed.
You programmers out there are prob gonna say,
"how much easier can we MAKE it for you?"
I just installed the python gui on vista.
(I will re-install it on THIS xp machine also if someone is walking me through anything to do with the install, later...)
I actually found the window that came up during the installation cryptic. It LOOKED like there were checkboxes on the screen.
but, they allowed me to do NOTHING to them.
remember, I'm accustomed to standard windows (software) installations.
I ended up just going ahead with the installation.
since it appeared I couldn't change the check boxes...
I just went ahead with the assumption that all the options would BE installed.
But--- I do not KNOW for sure WHAT the screen was telling me.
Okay. now that THAT was "done"
I then tried to (again... forgive such extreme NOOBness)
I tried to make/save/run the "Hello Monty Python" one-line program.
(I THINK I saved it, but again, I'm not sure... I think I saved it in the directory that the python gui runs from actually)
I also wonder, do python programs REQUIRE line numbers?
or is it an option? (or what?)
to run the program,
In the suggestion, it said click on "F5 or RunModule"
I found no such thing as a "run module" option in the python gui.
I am confused. Obviously.
if anyone just guides me a bit... so I can save/run my very first python ONE LINE program... I'd be very greatful.
I mean, you'll probably have to be very literal and explicit on what to LOOK for/at and what to CLICK on or what to type in.
yah, I've got NOOB written all over me. Good Lord. It's prob right IN FRONT of my face...
In the meantime, I'll go back, look some more, re-read a couple things and see if I can figure out what is most likely right IN FRONT of me. I actually have to leave for a short while. be back in about two or 3 hours... to try again
(sheepishly and humbly, yours)
