Anaconda3, Windows, command-line arguments

April 16, 2017 Leave a comment

I installed Anaconda3 on Windows 7, but when I wanted to pass a command-line argument to a script, the script didn’t receive the parameter(s). The command-line arguments were simply ignored.

I found the solution here. This is a blog post from 2010. This issue is still unresolved…

In short: open the registry editor (regedit), find the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\py_auto_file\shell\open\command , and append the string “%*” (without quotes) to the end of the entry. It should look similar to this:

"C:\Anaconda3\python.exe" "%1" %*

Install NumPy and SciPy on Ubuntu

November 9, 2011 9 comments

On Ubuntu 11.10, here is what I had to do:

sudo pip install numpy
sudo apt-get install libatlas-base-dev gfortran
sudo pip install scipy
sudo pip install matplotlib   # recommended

Line 2 was necessary for SciPy, otherwise it was complaining that BLAS and a Fortran compiler were missing. Note that gfortran replaces the package g77.
