For Python, I still prefer IDLE or PythonWin.

For other things like cmd, ini, and other text files, I use either
Notepad++ or UltraEdit.

IDLE for short scripts, PyDev under Eclipse for big Python projects,
and the Python shell for basic one-offs.

I am very noob to this Python game (though it has been around since
1995 me thinks) and currently (I was using ActivePython and then IDLE)
I have been using a combination of Notepad2 <url>http://www.flos-
freeware.ch/notepad2.html</urland the interpreter (Python 2.5) on a
Windblows X[crement]P[roblem] SP2 machine.

I like IDLE but it seems to stop working after the first few times and
I would then re-install it and it would work a few times more.
ActivePython was cool but I could not find a version of it that used
Python 2.5 (as far as I can see, it only uses 2.4)

Notepad2 allows you to launch your script directly from the editor
(just like IDLE) and has configurable code highlighting. And it is
FREE.

ActivePython is the distribution of Python. The distro includes PyWin32
(a bunch o' Windows stuff for Python). Part of that stuff is "Pythonwin"
-- the editor that you are probably referring to.

There is an ActivePython 2.5.1 now:

You should give Komodo Edit a try too:

Not sure where to post this... Found some interesting behavior in Windows Search (Start =Search =All files and folders =search for "A word or phrase in the file:"). This applies to XP and maybe other Windows flavors. Procedure: 1. Create a simple text file named test.txt. 2. Open the text file in a text editor and add a simple test word such as "blah" (not quotes).

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
