PythonWin, AutoDoc and german keyboards...

PythonWin is really great and like to use it all the time.

But, I use to an us keyboard and get support strings (.__doc__).
On the other side, most of my colleges use German keyboards and
the do not get these strings at all.

We are using:
- Python 2.4
- PyWin32 203

Here is an example:

When we enter range with us keyboard we get:
range( [range([start,] stop[, step]) -> list of integers]

When we do this with German keyboard we get... nothing,

except we enter: range)

[range([start,] stop[, step]) -> list of integers]
You see, if we press ")" on German KB, which is "(" on us KB
we get the help...

BTW: Changes to Python24\Lib\si te-packages\python win\pywin\defau lt.cfg
didn't help.
Is this a known issue?
And is there a work around?
Or do we have to take an other IDE like SPE?
Thank you in advance

It appears that the bindings are done by key code rather than character.
You may be able to patch this up in pythonwin\pywin \scintilla\keyc odes.py

Hi, I have python 2.2.3 + pythonwin 156 on win2k. The problem is that german chars like ń÷Ř─Í▄▀ are not handled correctly. Just create a test.py file with the content ń÷Ř─Í▄▀ and edit it with pythonwin. In the editor you will see only ń÷Ř─ . I had the problem in the past, wrote it to mark and he fixed it.

I've un-installed Python 2.4, re-installed Python 2.3 and PythonWin for 2.3, but it's still broke. When I start PythonWin, sometimes it looks like it is going to be okay. But as soon as I open a .py file, the interactive window grabs the focus and will not let go. I am stumped. Is there something PythonWin uses that I could try re-installing? WxPython maybe?

I've been having a problem with PythonWin that seemed to start completely spontaneously and I don't even know where to START to find the answer. The only thing I can think of that marks the point between "PythonWin works fine" and "PythonWin hardly every works fine" was that I changed the size of my Virtual Paging file, noticing that it was too small (I currently have a P4 with 1G of RAM). I tried returning it to its original (smaller)...

Hi All, (sorry for my bad english) I wrote a __tiny__ and __stupid__ recursive script directly into pythonwin interactive window with a time.sleep(1) and a print before each recursion... I should have taken a closer look at the ending condition (never satisfied!), anyway I was quite confident that a control-C would have stopped the intepreter as it is (incidentally?) when this break sequence is entered

Dear All, I have been using postgresql-autodoc with great results, however, recently I have been getting a "segmentation fault" when using it. I contacted the author of autodoc, who said that it appears to be a debian problem (other debian users have experienced the same problems). However, since it is strictly a debian problem, he couldn't help - which is fair enough.
