<title>Switching between software versions</title>
<para>Gentoo supports having multiple versions of the same software on
the system. Notable examples are gcc, python and java but many more
exist. Administrators are able to switch between these installed
versions using <command>eselect</command><indexterm>
<primary>eselect</primary>
</indexterm>. We have seen this tool already previously for
switching between profiles.</para>
<para>For instance, to display the installed Python versions:</para>
<programlisting># <command>eselect python list</command>
Available Python interpreters:
[1] python2.7
[2] python3.1 *</programlisting>
<para>In the above example, Python 3.1 is the system default. You can
switch the system to 2.7 then using <command>eselect python set
1</command>.</para>
<para>To get an overview of the supported modules in eselect, run
<command>eselect help</command>.</para>
