I have installed pyton 2.7.3 in my localmachine (windows 7 ) and as instructed in http://docs.python.org/tutorial/interpreter.html and I tried to set path using cmd prompt.
Traceback (most recent call last): File"<stdin>",line 1, in <module>
Nameerror:name 'python' is not defined
Start Menu > Control Panel > System & Security > System > Advanced System Settings/
Under System variables-path->edit and added this code ;C:\python27
You must be doing the second part, executing
python command in python interpreter itself.
