I have been working at this assignment for hours and gotten absolutely no where. I mean nothing is working. Everything is erroring out. I have very little experience with python, but is something I would like to learn, just... lol, school has gotten in the way. Irony.
Turns out, this python is written in Python 1.5.1 from 1998. Half of it doesn't work in the newer versions of Python. I dropped all the way down to 2.1 and still was getting no where. So, I try to download the old version on python's website and they don't even offer the 1.5.1 .exe anymore and only had binaries. They did have version 1.5.2 from 1999 which was the last version of 1.5 released.
The funniest part is the message that greeted me on the page. " Do yourself a favor and get a more recent version!"
This class has been money well spent.
