I am very new to Python, going through the Python 3 Hard Way. I am trying to put more time into the course by incorporating short sessions during work, but I do not have administrative privileges to install Python on my machine. I found the pythonanywhere.com website, which everyone seems to speak very highly of; but I am trying to operate in the shell from windows and I’m having trouble changing directories. It appears that the “bash” console is a Linux environment?
I am currently working through exercise 16 which is reading and writing files. I need some kind of portable/virtual environment so that I can operate in the command line, like the book says, read and write to files in a directory, etc. I don’t seem to have the capability to do this in pythonanywhere.com… but maybe I am missing something.
Thanks in advance for any advice. I can still work through the problems before and after work, but I would like to increase my exposure in short burets throughout the day.
