Chapter 2

Setting up a Python Forensics Environment

Abstract

This chapter provides a broad range of considerations for establishing a Python development environment. This includes operating system selection, Python version preferences, integrated development environments, Standard Library capabilities, platform selection, and third-party library considerations. In addition, we begin to ease into some very simple Python application examples to demonstrate the Python Shell operation, module importing and usage, and program construction and execution.
