I managed to delete my python in
usr/bin by foolishly doing
sudo rm /usr/bin/python and now it seems like I need to reinstall my OS.
First off is this necessary? And secondly is there an easy way to do this without having to erase everything on my disk?
In other words ideally I would like my programs I have installed to remain there after reboot saving me the trouble of having to install everything again to date. Is this possible?
