What you need for this book

The only hard requirement for this book is a Python interpreter. A Python 3.5 or newer interpreter is recommended, but many of the code examples will function in older Python versions, such as 2.7, with a simple from __future__ import print_statement added at the top of the file.

Additionally, Chapter 14, Extensions in C/C++, System Calls, and C/C++ Libraries requires a C/C++ compiler, such as GCC, Visual Studio, or XCode. A Linux machine is by far the easiest to execute the C/C++ examples, but these should function on Windows and OS X machines without too much effort as well.
