I'm trying to install PyPedal but was overwhelmed by the steps. Here is a link to the program:
The first problem is, on this page http://pypedal.sourceforge.net/manual/node18.html
, the package is described as .tar.gz, however when I try to download, the package is a .egg
I searched online since I never dealt with a .egg, some suggest to use the unzip command others have used the command without success.
The second problem is, I have to install Python which I have no experience with. This the Python page http://www.python.org/download/
all the Linux files seem to be source tarball. What would be the best way to install a source as I have never done this before?
The third problem is, which of the third-party extensions used by PyPedal listed in this link I could skip installing http://pypedal.sourceforge.net/manual/node15.html
. All I interested in is getting the numerical result that this program produces.
Assume that I have download the PyPedal and Python files to the /home directory.
Your help will be much appreciated,
