When I run the command
pip list on my computer (windows 10), at the very top of the list are some packages whose name starts with a hyphen. For example:
In my site-packages directory, I can find folders with the same names, but a tilde instead of a hyphen.
Furthermore, they appear to have the same files in them as packages that sound similar (in the above examples, pip and matplotlib, respectively).
What are these packages and should I delete them off of my computer?
