You find instructions for installing VPython on Linux, Mac but it's a
pain unless you just grab 3.1.1 through Ubuntu (where I run it
sometimes). Works great with student learners, part of my Saturday
Academy classes (preparing for tomorrow's as we speak).
It's an open source C++ library out of Carnegie-Mellon, nothing to do
with the Visual * products out of Microsoft. But I can see where you
might be confused.

Help on built-in function range in module __builtin__:
range([start,] stop[, step]) -> list of integers
Return a list containing an arithmetic progression of integers.
range(i, j) returns [i, i+1, i+2, ..., j-1]; start (!) defaults to 0.
When step is given, it specifies the increment (or decrement).
For example, range(4) returns [0, 1, 2, 3]. The end point is omitted!
These are exactly the valid indices for a list of 4 elements.
