5. There are significant differences in these two versions of the language. IronPython is still rather young, but it is quite usable, and it is reported to be faster than standard Python on some benchmarks.

But for long paths, you wind up with a lot of backslashes: path = 'C:\\Program Files\\fnord\\foo\\bar\\baz\\frozz\\bozz' Raw strings are useful in such cases. They don’t treat the backslash as a special character at all. Every character you put into a raw string stays the way you wrote it: >>> print r'C:\nowhere' C:\nowhere >>> print r'C:\Program Files\fnord\foo\bar\baz\frozz\bozz' C:\Program Files\fnord\foo\bar\baz\frozz\bozz As you can see, raw strings are prefixed with an r. It would seem that you can put anything inside a raw string, and that is almost true.
2. Follow the instructions for downloading the sources. 3. tgz. Store it in a temporary location.

If your version of tar doesn’t support the z option, you may want to uncompress the archive with gunzip first, and then use tar -xvf afterward. If there is something wrong with the archive, try downloading it again.
