First - thanks for the answer/comment.

i'm new to python and my version is Python 3.6.0 :: Anaconda custom (x86_64)

Mac OS is  High Sierra 10.13.3

Latest cache release downloaded a few days ago.

The code immediately reported syntax errors which were easy enough to fix by using parens. for the print function. The raw-input function also had to be changed to just input. But these syntax errors did not give me confidence for the rest of the install and sure enough I got the warnings and errors as stated. Will try again and post the rather lengthy output.

I've been trying out python with jupyter notebooks and that works well. Also tensor flow and spark python. To my way of thinking the synergy between cache globals and the python list structure and the associated structures used by the machine learning libraries of tensor flow/spark is a big deal.

Thanks for answering. I think the problems are on the eclipse side. Using the oomph installer that the eclipse website steers you at is a bust. So eventually I decided to install using brew but I could only get information for the php package - brew cask install eclipse-php. What is the package name for JavaScript/web that we are advised to install? Anyhow I was able to create a cache routine in Atelier in this php version of the ide. Interesting to see how this plays out but the look and feel of the editor seems so amateurish compared to studio.
