Python on Gnu/Linux issue
Python, windows, not so newbie
It's my understanding the name of the directory in which the text file is created will be used as the name of the .exe file. I don't see that noted in the "(Plain) Console HelloWorld" or the "Plain Graphical HelloWorld" section.

- It is already noted somewhere in the Console section (the one where the "HelloWorld1.exe" is located); maybe it's not clear. Btw I already edited that by copying your sentence. I decided to not repeat it in the Graphical version because the newbie is already assumed to have experience programming. --Simple9371 (talk) 03:22, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
I had another thought, but have not taken the time to confirm this. It seems to me, the resulting .exe is standalone. That is, it does not require the IDE as a runtime. One could move the new .exe to another Windows machine and run it successfully.

- Well, I just took the time to find out.
- One CAN move the .exe and run it on another machine just using the Microsoft Windows capabilities. I even ran it from a shortcut on my desktop.
- I don't, yet, have access to Wine or another Windows look alike, but that might be an interesting experiment.

- Honestly, I expected a standalone EXE because it is 'compiled.' Anyways, I already added "standalone" in "Upon running the code..." sentence. --Simple9371 (talk) 04:20, 4 December 2020 (UTC)
