Python environment work

Asked by Roee Sommer on 2011-11-27

As far as I understood, Python environment work is installed by default. when I'm typing "python" in terminal I'm getting the below:
Python 2.7.2+ (default, Oct 4 2011, 20:03:08)
[GCC 4.6.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
How do I open "Idle" page in order to start programing?

The Python interpreter is indeed installed by default. The information you are seeing in front of you indicates that you are in the Python interpreter.

If you want to use Idle (recommended) then you will have to install that program:

sudo apt-get install idle

If you want to use the interpreter have a look at one of the primers available on the net, eg:
http://docs.python.org/tutorial/

If you do want to use Idle, here's the primer on that:
