Pinned topic Does Python come pre-loaded on the AIX 7.1, 6.1 (and its fixpacks)

Does Python come pre-loaded on the AIX 7.1, 6.1 (and its fixpacks)?
If so, what version of Python comes installed?
If not, is it available as a package to be downloaded for AIX? (Python foundation does not have binaries for AIX).

    No it doesn't. You may find it on the Linux toolkit CD that came with your base OS.
    If you don't have that you'll just have to go get it from an Open Source.

    Here's a good one I use. Just make sure you get the right binaries for your OS level. And you will have to install the prerequisites separately which you would have to do anyway if you do have the toolkit CD.

    Good luck.
