version prefix? 2.3 instead of 2.5 in leopard

Post by bubs » Fri Feb 22, 2008 5:22 pm

I'm confused the version prefix says "system default 2.3" but when I run the interactive shell from scride it says python version 2.5.1

What is the version prefix? I thought it was the python version but it says 2.3 and I have 2.5. I was just messing around with scride today and found this. is it going to be a problem when I write code?

Also before I actually looked further into it I found a post on the forum about how to add your own version prefix, but how do you remove the one I added? it doesn't need to be there now and the Interactive shell doesn't work with it.

thanks

"System Default" was based on what the system default version was when I wrote it (which was 2.3). It really should have just said "System Default" without a version number, though that is a bit confusing as well (and the other version prefixes are based on installing newer version of python from python.org, which end up in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/X.Y/bin/python for appropriate values of X and Y).

So you can just ignore that version numbering for the "default" prefix - it's just /usr/bin/.

To remove a prefix, you just get rid of the corresponding .scrIDErc file from ~/Libary/Application Support/ScrIDE and relaunch.
