Here is what it looks like to do a Damon analysis with the interactive Python interpreter. To write reusable programs, you type the same commands into a python script (a text file with a .py extension). In this interactive session, we:
Don't worry about the actual Damon commands yet. That's covered in the tutorial.
Running Damon is not hard but it does require some comfort with coding in Python and a way to get information about how to use Damon methods. If you're willing to climb that learning curve, Damon is as powerful and customizable as you want it to be. If you just want to cut to the chase and do an analysis, use Damon In-the-Cloud. No installs. No special programming knowledge. Just enter a few parameters and run.
