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?

@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.
