Installing NLTK on pythonista
Hellow, So I was able to use pipista to dowload nltk. Now I can see the nltk-2.0.4.tar.gz file in the directory. However, I am trying to use shellista to untar and ungzip this package, but pythonista always tells me the file cannot be found? Does anyone know a solution to this problem?
do you see the file when you do an ls? If not trying changing directories until you do.

By default packages downloaded with Pipista will land in the
pypi-modulesfolder, so you'll first need to run
cd pypi-modulesand then the
It didnt land in the pypi-modules foldr. it landed in the scripts library. But I attempted moving it to the folder and it is still giving me the same error.
So it is now in the scripts folder? (i.e. when you cd scripts and ls, you can see it there). While in that directory you do gunzip nltk-2.0.4.tar.gz and you should be left with a .tar file which you can then do untar nltk-2.0.4.tar. What is the error msg?
No it is in the overall area. Not in a folder.
But how do u cd back to the overall directory?
'cd ..' (without the quotes) will take you up a level
