Ty John Bolton i just dled the active state thing with python interactive shell its great so far everything is working great but i have another question. in my book it says interactive things are great but i need a programming enviroment something called an IDLE where i can actually save functions etc and all that stuff. did that come with the active state? ive been looking in the file i dont see anything about it. where can i get something like that? thanks.

for modules in the documentation it talks about using a text file where do i have to save it? i get you name it whatever.py then import whatever but where do i create the text file?

thanks


nvm i believe i found it

sorry

You can create the file with any text editor (NOT a word processor) as long as you can it has a .py extension (make sure it doesn't end up as .py.txt). You can save the file anywhere (but modules that include each other should be in the same folder; Python will look either there or in its own library directories).
