Hello folks,
 I am new to programming and choosing python as my first language to
learn, thus excuse the perhaps naiveté of this question and the way it
is formulated. For the last few weeks I've been trying to solve an
issue running python on mac snow leopard 10.6.8. I was running a
version of python that was preinstalled on my computer. At some point
in reading the python website I saw that version 3.2.2 was available
and recommended. After downloading and installing it along with
ActiveTcl 8.5.11. When I opened IDLE to run *hello world* nothing
happened, just a hard return...I tried reinstalling an earlier version
2.7, same problem. Reinstalled 3.2.2, same issue. Not sure how to get
python up and running. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
