How can I know a anaconda installer is for which python version?
I want to install python3.7 by anaconda and the anaconda list is shown below:
anaconda version list。
My question is how can I know a anaconda installer is for a special verison of python?
Actually, I know "Anaconda3-2020.05-Linux-x86_64.sh" is for python3.7。However, I am confused that by what infomation we can get the answer before we finish installing it.

You can install specific version of python through the anaconda prompt, using:
conda install python = 2.7.8 or
conda install python = 3.5.0 (for example).
You can even create a dedicated python environnement for a specific version:
conda create --name py36 python=3.6

Anton B answer is correct, but if you just want to download the correct installer, you can use the following:
- For Anaconda you can use this: https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/packages/oldpkglists/
- For miniconda you can use the tables on the following page: https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/miniconda.html
