- Python (2.5, 2.6 or 2.7). Note forom scipy.org: NumPy installer should be used with the Python from http://python.org, not with Apple Python.

Verify your install (the commands below after '$' should be typed at the command prompt, the rest is sample output)
$ python --version Python 2.6.1
any version of 2.5, 2.6 or 2.7 is fine. 3.0 is not going to work.
$ python Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jun 24 2010, 21:47:49) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import nltk >>>
If you don't get an error, it means it worked. Type exit() to leave the interactive python console.
