Hello Guys, Code 2 Learn starts off its Python Tutorial. Like Java, C++, C etc, Python is also a Programming Language. Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability.
IPython provides a rich toolkit to help you make the most out of using Python interactively. Its main components are:
- Powerful Python shells (terminal- and Qt-based).
- Support for interactive data visualization and use of GUI toolkits.
- Flexible, embeddable interpreters to load into your own projects.
- Tools for high level and interactive parallel computing.
Installing IPython :
IPython can be used as a replacement for the standard Python shell, or it can be used as a complete working environment for scientific computing (like Matlab or Mathematica) when paired with the standard Python scientific and numerical tools. It supports dynamic object introspections, numbered input/output prompts, a macro system, session logging, session restoring, complete system shell access, verbose and colored traceback reports, auto-parentheses, auto-quoting, and is embeddable in other Python programs.To install this package in Ubuntu.
$ sudo apt-get install ipython
After the installation is successful, let install Pylab which will help us to give the MATLAB like properties in Python.
To install Pylab, write the following :
$ sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib
After the installation gets completed, type in : ipython -pylab
You will get a screen like below :
For Installing on Windows :
