## Python Interpretor

How do I run the python interpreter on my computer? I am told I need to run it. But Where and how?

I think they mean in the multiple choice questions.

I am thinking the same, you are told you can use the python interpretor to test out the problems before choosing them.
However, these multiple choice parts do not bring up the interpretor and so you cannot use it.

I think the interpretor should always be loaded under the video section so we can use it any time, that or have a link at the side which open the interpretor.

Hallo Hitesh,

In the Course Frequently Asked Questions (http://www.udacity.com/overview/Course/cs101/CourseRev/apr2012#q12) it says:

You do not need to download Python to take the course, as we provide
all the necessary tools right in your browser. If you prefer to

or you may like to visit http://www.python.org/download/ which has links to installers for whichever operating system you have, I recommend choosing the 2.7.3 version if you want to work with the course material.

(Note, the course uses Python 2.6, there are later versions but these may use different syntax, so your answers might not work the same locally and here).

There is discussion on the best Integrated Development Environment (IDE), if you use Windows you can read more here:

Hope this helps!
