Newbie stuck loading AS Python on OS X

Hello Friends:

I'm new to Python and ActiveState Python. I have installed AS Python on my OS X 10.7.5 Mac.
I open a terminal window and type python

This is what I get:

Miguel-Rezniceks-Mac-Pro:~ migs$ python
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Jul 31 2011, 19:30:53)
[GCC 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2335.15.00)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>

Can someone lead me step by step to getting AS python to load?

Thanks in advance,

Miguel Reznicek

Can't find Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::Phylip::consense module using ppm

A script I am compiling with PerlApp 9.2.1 and ActivePerl version 5.16.3.1603 requires the module Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::Phylip::consense. Using PPM 4.17 I cannot find any part of Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo. In addition to the basic ActiveState PAckage Repository I have added the Bioperl, the log4perl and the Bioperl-run repositories.

The module I need is on CPAN. IS there something else I need to do to download it via ppm, or do I need to download and install it manually?

Thanks for your help.

How to uninstall ActiveTcl on my mac?

Please help me in uninstalling ActiveTcl8.5.12.1 from my MacBook Pro (OS 10.7.4).

I tried with following information presented on your web page:

but no luck in doing so, since I can't find uninstall script.

I would really appreciate some help.

Thank You in advance.

Installing ActivePerl on OS X Lion

Hi, I may eventually figure this out, but I cannot get the manual part of the installation process to work. I am stuck at the configuration part. OS X Lion. I am trying to do this as a student/novice, because my system Perl did not perform as it should....it told me none of the documentation was in existence, and I couldn't get on to the second exercise after "hello World, " in LEARNING PERL. It actually said that there was "No documentation found for "perlfunc".

Then, after extensive searching, I found that OSX has defective/incomplete Perl.

Need separate Mach-O ActivePerl 5.14 builds to make DBD-Oracle

It's possible that this problem does not exist prior to Lion but it sure is a problem now.

I'd like to build DBD-Oracle but can't because the oracle instance client library is incompatible with ActivePerl universal binaries.

The oracle instance client library is only "Mach-O dynamically linked shared library i386" but the ActivePerl universal binary is both "Mach-O executable i386" and "Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64".

Clearly, this problem can easily be fixed if you provide 3 packages: universal, i386, and x86_64.

How to Uninstall on Mac OS X Lion

I installed the latest version on my Mac running Lion. I'm just in the process of switching to the Mac platform and I can't seem to find the way to uninstall Active Python. Can anyone provide any insight. I haven't been able to find any references by searching. Thanks in advance.

ActivePerl on MAC OS 10.7

I recently downloaded and installed activeperl on my mac because I failed to install required module into native perl distribution (there is no make utility). But now I cannot realize how to make Activeperl to run as default perl.

which perl always returns /usr/bin/perl though I added /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.12/bin to /private/etc/paths file
and when I run a perl script it reports that modules (for example Text::CSV_XS) not found

Any help is highly appreciated
