Dear Colin,

Just to let you know that I got around my problem (I didn't solve it directly) by using Octave Online, which allows me to run Symbolic, and do what I need to do without glitch.

Thank you, Colin.  This may be a bit over my head.  (And I know mine is a textbook case of how not to ask for help.)

I tried setenv PYTHON with every path leading to file but nothing worked.  (setenv is the right way with my version of Symbolic.)

I may have to cut my losses and use some other approach.

Hi Julio,

(I've CC'd the address@hidden mailing list, hope that's ok).

Perhaps your system has more than one python installed.  You might try
doing the following (within Octave):

setenv PYTHON \path\to\your\preferred\python

(Or maybe "sympref python \path\to\your\preferred\python" if you're on
an older version of Symbolic).
