Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
Which shell command gives me the actual version of
pip I am using?
pip gives with
pip show all version of modules that are installed but excludes itself.
You can do this:
Just for completeness:
pip list and inside the list you’ll find also pip with its version.
For windows just type:
python -m pip --version
import pip help(pip)
shows the version at the end of the help file.
Any of the following should work
pip --version # pip 19.0.3 from /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)
pip -V # pip 19.0.3 from /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)
pip3 -V # pip 19.0.3 from /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pip (python 3.7)
Many people use both 2.X and 3.X python. You can use
pip -V to show default pip version.
If you have many python versions, and you want to install some packages through different pip, I advise this way:
sudo python2.X -m pip install some-package==0.16
On RHEL “pip -V” works :
$ pip -V pip 6.1.1 from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages (python 2.6)
check two things
because the default pip may be anyone of this so it is always better to check both.
Start Python and type
pip.__version__ which works for all python packages.
First, open a command prompt After type a bellow commands.
check a version itself Easily :
pip installation :
pip install pip
pip Version check:
For Windows machine go to command prompt and type.
`pip -v` or `pip --v`
However note, if you are using macos catelina which has the zsh (z shell) it might give you a whole bunch of things, so the best option is to try install the version or start as
py -m pip –version
This worked for python version 3.9.7
