where is python on linux?

P: n/a
I installed fedora core 6 and it has python installed.
But the question is, where is the executable python file?
I can't find it so I come here for help.
I want to config pydev for eclipse and I need to know where the
ececutable python file is.
Thank you!

on linux type:

You should get a list of directories where all of

Hi Frank,

Usually "Python" is installed in /usr/lib/python[VER] but you should be
able to call up /usr/bin/python without any difficulty.
