It is more difficult than I have anticipated to install all these python packages. Compilation problems and obscure error messages are everywhere when I try to build and install these packages! After a few hours of googling, i found that Enthought has a ~500MB distribution of python that has all of these packages. http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php (it is free for students!)

>>> import numpy

>>> numpy.test('1','10')

```
```>>> import scipy

>>> scipy.test('1','10')

`>>> import pylab`

>>> x = pylab.randn(10000)

>>> pylab.hist(x, 100)

>>> pylab.show()
