Python from novice to pro
Mac OS 9 does not come with any version of Python, but installation is very simple, and there is only one choice.
Follow these steps to install Python on Mac OS 9:
Download the MacPython23full.bin file from http://homepages.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython/download.html.
If your browser does not decompress the file automatically, double-click MacPython23full.bin to decompress the file with Stuffit Expander.
Double-click the installer, MacPython23full.
Step through the installer program.
AFter installation is complete, close the installer and open the /Applications folder.
Open the MacPython-OS9 2.3 folder.
Double-click Python IDE to launch Python.
The MacPython IDE should display a splash screen, and then take you to the interactive shell. If the interactive shell does not appear, select -> (Cmd-0). You'll see a screen like this:
