To check that you are running Python 3.xx and NOT Python 2.xx

Paste this small program into your IDE of choice on your machine.

Run it normally.

If it gets error messages that look like this, you are using Python 3.xx.

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for /: 'str' and 'int'

If it runs without errors, like this, if the user typed in 24 and pressed Enter,

Enter an integer 24
('half =', 12)
You are running Python TWO. You MUST use Python THREE in this class. Please see a TA or Dr. Keen to get Python 3.xx installed on your machine.

Test Program

def main():
    userinp = input("Enter an integer ")
    half = userinp / 2
    print("half =", half)
