CLion 1.5 Help


This section provides descriptions of the Python-specific procedures that are used in projects of all supported types, and the procedures that pertain to the empty projects only.

In this section:


At least one Python interpreter is properly installed on your machine. If you are a Windows user, we strictly recommend you to install Python from here. This will prevent you of possible problems with debugger on Windows.
