Python System Requirements


I want to install python[2.7] on my linux device but I'm storage space conscious and need to know how much storage the software needs before I do so. I thought this would be an easy thing to look up but I've had no luck. Anybody know where to get this piece of information? TYIA

I'm confused. Are you looking for 'memory' requirements, or 'storage' requirements?

But that isn't considering any of the requirements that it has. That sort of depends on what OS you are running, what libraries are already installed, if you are building from source, if you are using a package manager, etc. etc.
