    Programming with Python

    Good Morning All!

    After spending the whole weekend programming, I have a rather annoying headache! The things we do for our students!

    We are looking at teaching the students Python and I have installed the Python GUI tool but I'm look to see if there is a compiler so that the finished code can be run and the students can see the results.

    Any ideas? (Would bang head on desk, but I already have a headache!)

    Python is an interpreted language, not a compiled one. So, there isn't a "compiler" as such.

    To run a python file you'd run it like "python filename.py" in a command prompt.

    It's an interpreted language.... It bundles all the libraries that you are using into a packaged .exe
