Hello again all. Thanks for your help over the months!
I recently migrated to Python 3, and my distro (Mint 14) comes with it as well as Python 2.7.
Apt-get only pulls out Python 3.2.3, but the latest version is 3.3.1. All of the guides I could find only mentioned how to install Python 3 to begin with, but I want to update it.
Also, I'm pretty hazy about how Linux generally handles command-line statements for programs:
For Python 3, I use python3
For Python 2, I use python.
I always use Python 3 by default; can I change it to:
python for Python 3
python2 for Python 2
Is this simply a matter of renaming directories in /bin? I don't want to wreck my distro messing around in there without knowing for sure.
