interactive programme (add a new line in Tk)

somebody recently showed me how to create a new line using \n which was
great.The thing is when i am creating the programme the text i wish to add is
quite long.and it ends up stretching the width of several pages,which i think
looks quite messy.Would it be possible for some one to show me how to create
another line while writing my programme.What i mean by this is where my text
ends "iv arrived"i wish to add a new line beneath to continue my text so i do
not reach the end of the page.

from Tkinter import *

root = Tk()

w = Label(root, text="\n Hello, world! \n iv arrived")
w.pack()

root.mainloop()

Thanks nige

Try the Tkinter.Text widget. You can configure it to be read only, etc.
so it behaves like a label. It will automatically wrap text for you and
will put in line breaks ("\n") where you tell it. See

Hello, I was unable to use popen2.popen4 to grab python.exe's (2.3) output, for starts, it doesn't show the version information at the beginning and won't return anything when writing to the stdin pipe, it seems that if I give it some error nous expression, the pipe would return the exception data, though nothing else comes through. A friend of mine also tried this using win32api on delphi, and got the same result.

I know you can start php -a and go into interactive mode. This works well exept you have to keep putting <?php code here ; bla blah code ; Couple of problems with this. 1) Exits php when you make an error. 2) When you type a command; it displays the result but does not do an automatic CR/LF
