    The entry-level programming class at my university uses Python, any uses for Python on the Mac? I tinkered with Python last summer, writing a little app in the Windows environment.

    I don't understand the question. Python, being a programming language, obviously has uses on a Mac. Are you asking if Python is available on the Mac? The answer is yes. If you install the Xcode developer tools (free), you'll have python v2.3.

    I'm a big Python user, and I use a Mac ;). But if you want to play around with Python on your Mac then I'd stick to the version Apple packages with the OS (ignore MacPython) and run it though the Terminal; with the readlines module of course :cool:.

    Mark.
