Move Memos from a Palm device into the iPhone's Notes app

I just saw a Comment Authored by: Boing2999 on Feb 05, '11 05:40:43AM

It's basically a Conversion of Tab and Return via Python Script into MBox Format…That sounds great, except:

How do I run Python Script?
Do I need a specific application?
Or is it to be done from the Terminal?

The nearest I've been near scripts was to run an Apple Script… So, I really need someone to explain to me how to run this Python Script!

I am already on Macbook running Lion, 10.7.2, and I can Export and move the Tab Return Export of my Memos from Palm Desktop 4.2.2 that is running on my Powerbook G4, 10.4.11 G4, 10.4.11.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that Boing2999 is reading this, or… Maybe someone can provide the instructions for how I can run that Python Script on my Macbook 10.7.2, so the that Mail can Import that File in MBOX Format.

I also wonder if Mail will know to consider this as an Import of Mail Notes, and not Email Messages… Otherwise, this whole Conversion would be a waste of time!

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

P.S. I just found this:

http://macosx.com/forums/mac-os-x-system-mac-software/299326-how-run-py-python-script.html

So, between Terminal or whatever else you someone reading this here might suggest, it's a question of me finding someone who knows the Terminal, cause I don't… And hopefully Mail will know to Convert this Import into Notes, not Email Messages!

I should also probably run this on my Test User, so not to mess up my Main User Mail….

Thanks in advance for your help!
