Thinking I was about to check the version of Python installed on my computer, I typed
"installing zipimport hook", but then also a whole bunch of text (probably 50 or so lines of text), among which "import errno # builtin", "import posix # builtin", "import _codecs # builtin", and toward the end "Python 2.7.8 |Anaconda 2.1.0 (x86_64)| (default, Aug 21 2014, 15:21:46)"
python -V (uppercase) or
python --version. The lowercase
-v means “verbose” and adds a bunch of diagnostic information to the output that you can safely ignore.
