Difference between GUI python and command line python?

December 18, 2010 – 5:17 pm

I have just started out with python and have been using both the command line and the GUI python (called python shell). I am wondering what is the difference between the two because in my experience a shell is basically a command line.

  2. gui is graphical user interface and command line is, well, command line. you use commands on command line and you click buttons and check boxes in a gui.

  3. The Python shell is sort of like Notepad, except it’s a Python interpreter. (You can type commands into it and it will execute them.) Think of cmd.exe or the Linux terminal with python.exe in the path. you just don’t have to keep typing python in front of your commends, if you set a variable to a value, it remains in the next command, you can write and save .py files directly, etc.
