    18 Python is a computer scripting language, which means that one must have the Python interpreter installed on your computer to run a Python program. However, there are several [PythonPackages Python packages required by GSAS-II] that are not distributed within the standard Python distribution, so not just any package of the Python interpreter will do for GSAS-II. For development, we have been using the full [http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php EPD] distribution but also do some testing with the Canopy and Anaconda distributions. Note that GSAS-II is being developed with version 2.x of Python (2.7.6 as this is written). It has not been tested with version 3.x of Python since we lack a dist for this.

For development, we are now using the [https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/ Anaconda Python distribution] and recommend this. Previously were used the [http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php EPD] distribution, but this is now out of date. Note that there are currently two major versions of Python, 2.7.x and (newer) 3.x. GSAS-II and be used with either, but has gotten more testing with 2.7.

    2020 In addition to the Python dists referenced in the [#AlternateInstallInstructions quick install instructions] above, there are others for Windows we have not tested:

     22 * [https://store.enthought.com/downloads/#default Enthought Canopy] is a Python distribution from a company that has done quite a bit of work in Python and made that available to the community. We have not done any testing with this for a while, but have done so in the past and expect it to work fine.
    2123
    2224 * [http://www.pythonxy.com/ Python(x,y)] is a free Windows (and Linux) Python distribution. It focuses on supporting the Qt GUI package while GSAS-II requires wxPython, but this distribution does offer wx and all the other packages that GSAS-II requires, as far as we are aware. Note that when you install, you will either need to select to install all packages or else perform a customized installation to ensure that the [PythonPackages Python packages required by GSAS-II] are installed. To install, download the .exe file, run it and read the instructions.
     
    3234 * [http://tortoisesvn.net/ TortoiseSVN] incorporates Subversion capabilities into Windows. See the downloads directory and be sure to install the version (64-bit or 32-bit) appropriate for your version of Windows -- this must match the OS or it will not run. Once TortoiseSVN is installed, follow [TortoiseInstall these installation instructions]
