I have an Anaconda installation of Python as well as an installation that comes when downloading Python and IDLE from Python.org and I use both of them.
For my Anaconda python I can use
pip install --upgrade PackageName to update a package by just typing that line into iTerm.
For my "IDLE Python" I have had help updating the copy of the same package that IDLE imports. They "temporarily switched my Python", updated the package with pip, then "un-switched" it.
This worked nicely and I'd like to do it again. From my description is it possible to decipher what actually happened and to suggest the lines that might do this?
If there are other ways to do this, seeing those would also be appreciated, but I'd like to try this method specifically.
