New to Pycharm, need help with setup.

I just got pycharm and am struggling to figure out how to set it up. Previously I was using the Wing IDE inside a Ubuntu Virtual Box. Can someone explain to me how to start coding in python in this program?

Hi Logan,
do you have PyCharm running?
If so, just describe in general what you'd like to do.

I don't know how to access the interpreter, for one. I am familiar with the Wing IDE and now I can't find anything. : (

No problem - PyCharm has a great built in interpreter:
Just click 'Tools -> Run Python Console...'.

Or were you asking how to tell PyCharm which interpreter to use?

Okay, thanks. If I have any more questions, can I let you know?

In Wing IDE when your program encountered an error, it told you why it failed, saying something like, "int() argument must be string or num, not 'line'" is it possible to get pycharm to do the same?

The IDE itself told you that or the interpreter? I'm guessing the IDE just displayed the output.
The Python interpreter should notify you of run time errors, no matter which IDE is used.
Just run your script.

As to PyCharm, it detects issues / suggests changes to your code while you type. very useful.
