    Re: looking for a python compiler + tutorial

    You don't need a compiler to use python, it can be interpreted. Just write a python program, save it as a ".py" and run it from the command line with "python my_program.py"

    BTW, if you want tutorials, search this board ^ (there is a search option somewhere up there)
    There are a ton of good links laying around.

    www.awaretek.com has some good python links.
    www.diveintopython.org is good if you've got a little programming experience already, but would also be okay for an "advanced beginner"

    Very complete list of python books. Also, check out activestate and faqts for code samples and snippets.

    I'm surprised more of you pro-Python programmers don't recommend the e-tutorial written by Python's author? Why not?

    You can compile Python to only Bytecode on Linux as far as I know, and that links does that. To convert a .py to an exe under Windows there is py2exe.
