Like, I know that Python 2.7 is old, but I do want to learn it. Can anyone help me create a Python 2.7 repl?

To create a new Python 2.7 repl. Use https://replit.com/new/python

This no longer works. It simply takes you the the new repl page. Searching gives only Python, which is 3.8. repl.it must have removed it in the last two months.

Python 2.7 was deprecated on January 1 of 2020. Why learn it? Honestly, there is no use because Python 3 has all the functionality Python2 had and much more. Just look at the maintenance status for Python 2:

@OldWizard209 my father has a big book on python 2.7. It's different from python 3, so I do want to give it a try.

There's an implementation of Python 2.7 called pypy on the Nix Package Manager if you absolutely need it. Just set up Nix in a Repl and install it.
