2============================

4To start Orange scripting, you will need to `download
5<http://orange.biolab.si/download/>`_ and install Orange. Python can
6be run in a window with a terminal, special integrated environments
7(like PythonWin), or shells like `iPython
8<http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/>`_. If you are a windows user,
9PythonWin comes with *full package* Orange instalation. Just like
10iPython (which, if you chose so, will need to install separately),
11PythonWin includes support for code completion feature. Orange come
12with many classes and functions, and it helps if editor can help you
13find the right names for them. Here is a screenshot of PythonWin
14with this feature:

25Whichever environment you are using, try now to import Orange (just
26type import Orange, brackets are in the following to denote shell's
27prompt):

29>>> import orange

32If this leaves no error and warning, Orange and python are properly
33installed and you are ready to continue with this Tutorial.
