include folder

Dear Python users and developers:

My trouble is as follows: I'm putting back on line an old pc-linux cluster.
Today while trying to install a python based program I got an error
regarding the Python.h file that should be in the /include/Phyton2.3
folder. So I went looking for the file but it wasn't there, I mean the
whole folder /Phyton2.3 inside the /usr/include directory was not there.
I am not te administrator of that cluster that has been off for at least
2 years, so I really don't know what to do. Please help.
My Linux version is: Debian GNU-Linux
My Python version is: 2.3

Many thanks

Reinstalling Python would be my first option. Any of the versions can
be downloaded from python.org but on debian you should be able to just
use apt-get or one of the GUIs for apt-get.

Perhaps that should be "/usr/include/python2.3"?

If you try the command

dpkg -L python-dev

it should list all the files and directories that were installed as part of
the python-dev package, including the bits that go in /usr/include.
