I am trying to install the SciPy stack located at scipy(dot)org/stackspec(dot)html [I am only allowed 2 links; trying to use them wisely]. I realize that there are much easier ways to do this, but I think there is a lot to be learned by doing it manually. I am relatively new to a lot of this stuff, so I apologize if I sound ignorant at any point.
I am running Windows 7 Enterprise - 64 bit. Here is what I have done so far:
cd C:\Python27 ! is it necessary to cd to python directtory?
pip install python-dateutil
bash: pip: command not found
cbennett2> pip install python-dateutil
>>> from dateutil.parser import parse
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#12>", line 1, in <module>
from dateutil.parser import parse
ImportError: No module named dateutil.parser
pip lives in
So you'll need to add that to your system path in order to run it from the command prompt. You could alternatively
cd into that directory each time, but that's a hassle.
See the top answer here for info on how to do that: Adding Python Path on Windows 7
Also, that is a terrifying way to install
pip. Grab it from Christophe Gohlke. Grab everything else from there for that matter.
