Using Python


I'm wondering what's actually going on when I do this...

chris@chris-crunch:~$ python
Python 2.7.11 |Anaconda 2.4.1 (64-bit)| (default, Dec 6 2015, 18:08:32)
[GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Anaconda is brought to you by Continuum Analytics.

>>>


So I've launched... anaconda, a python application...? um.... Hmmm...

What is going on here- what was the name of the language before I started this- and what are the uses for this exactly?

This dovetails with your other thread, where you mentioned a path of "/home/chris/anaconda2":
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rn-4175571409/

The language is Python...Anaconda has a good description of what it is/does on their website:
https://anaconda.org/about

Since it's for data scientists, and you're trying to run the deep learning CUDA code, that makes sense.

Chris, would you please start using code tags when posting code: while it is not absolutely vital for short snippets like this, it is much easier to read, and posting the code as plain text is considered rather arrogant/inconsiderate, which I'm sure you don't mean.
