 Python documentation, both the ``official'' documentation and published
 books, describe only how Python is used on these systems, causing

 Python you should start reading the IDE introduction in that document.

 \subsection{How to run a Python script}
 
 
 If you want to run Python scripts from the Terminal window command line
 or from the Finder you first need an editor to create your script.

 \program{vi} and \program{emacs} among them. If you want a more Mac-like
 editor \program{BBEdit} or \program{TextWrangler} from Bare Bones Software

 To run your script from the Terminal window you must make sure that
 \file{/usr/local/bin} is in your shell search path before \file{/usr/bin},

+MacPython honours all standard \UNIX{} environment variables such as

+from the Finder is non-standard
 as the Finder does not read your \file{.profile} or \file{.cshrc} at startup.
 You need to create a file \file{\textasciitilde /.MacOSX/environment.plist}.
 See Apple's Technical Document QA1067 for details.
