I wish to try some beta software which assumes python3.7 is installed. I
have Debian 9.8 installed on a machine dedicated to this exercise. I did
a web search and got a half dozen on topic hits. There were enough
differences that I wasn't sure if I was missing something important. The
last time I compiled something was on a PDP 11/45 in approximately 1975.

Suggestions?
TIA

Try the pip python repositories
https://docs.python.org/3/installing/index.html#install-pip-in-versions-of-python-prior-to-python-3-4

It looks like https://docs.python.org/3/ is where I should start. A quick browse suggests it will answer questions I hadn't thought of yet. Thanks for the link.


I recall I used it with ansible on debian with 2.7 where I needed python3.
I am not sure it will give you exactly what you need, but may be it would.
