Thanks Terry. The freeze worked but the install -r looked like it was doing 
the right thing but ended up doing nothing after complaining about matplotlib 
being unable to install one of its dependencies IIRC

I have deleted every trace of python following every element on sys.path for 
every version I had except for Apple's 2.6 and then reinstalled 3.7 from 
python.org's downloads. Then using the output from my 3.6 freeze, I installed 
each package on that list one by one with the --user option.

That worked well except for two of the biggies I wanted to play with -- scipy 
and matplotlib.
I did get numpy and pandas to install that way, which is a large part I need 
for what I am playing with.

install scipy wrote an error message longer than War and Peace that finished 
error: library dfftpack has Fortran sources but no Fortran compiler found

Command "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/bin/python3.7 -u 
-c "import setuptools, 
p-install-np76k73m/scipy/setup.py';f=getattr(tokenize, 'open', 
'\n');f.close();exec(compile(code, __file__, 'exec'))" install --record 
0norcg4s/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile 
--user --prefix=" failed with error code 1 in 
and matplotlib produced a beautifully formatted report that started with:
Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:

Edit setup.cfg to change the build options
and finished with

Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in 

Both look like not having write access to 

since I was installing with the --user switch, it looks like a bug in pip. It 
should have guessed I was a non-priviliged user. But then that "Edit 
setup.cfg to change the build options" is intriguing, especially since 'pip3 
config list' returns nothing.

Still. I have got a fair way there. Thanks so much for your help. It would be 
great if there were a Mac user with as much patience for numpties.
