Does Python find BornAgain?

After installing BornAgain and Python, the next step is to verify that the Python interpreter does find the module bornagain. Note that the module name is in small caps only.

From the command line

Use the command python3 or python to launch the python interpreter.

The interpreter will print its version number to the terminal. Make sure the version number starts with 3. Python2 is no longer supported by BornAgain.

At the Python command prompt >>>, enter (with small caps)

import bornagain

Upon failure, you would get an error message like

>>> import bornagain as ba
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'bornagain'

Upon success, the interpreter will just show the next command prompt. Enter


and scroll to the DATA section to see the major, minor, and patch number of BornAgain.
