Professor Marateck's instructions for installation

A note for Mac users: Prof Kapp has advised us that some of his students have run into an issue with the TCL/TK GUI library on some versions of Mac OS which prevent them
from running scripts within IDLE.  Here is a fix:  http://python2012.globalblogs.org/2012/01/25/mac-os-10-6-tcl-error/ (Resources on the python site are at http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/)

Notes on using Python's IDLE in Windows:

In order to set a default directory for your programs so that Python does not save them with the rest of Python, you can reconfigure the shortcut on your desktop to specify your own working directory. To do that, right-click on the shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties. In the "Start In:" line, enter your own folder, for example C:\PythonClass and then click OK.
