Use of Break point option in PythonWin IDE

100+
P: 440
Hi ,

We have a break point option in PythonWin IDE.Is it possible to use this break point option in debugging the code at that location?.

Still I am not comfortable in using the PythonWin IDE.

When to use IDLE - Python GUI and PythonWin IDE ?.

Whether the same Python file can be used in both the editors for execution.


Thanks in advance

In my opinion: Never. PythonWin debugger works but is a little clunky. IDLE debugger works but doesn't have good namespace navigation.
My favorite IDE is Stani's Python Editor, because it has great namespace navigation. But I use Boa Constructor because it creates all my GUI stuff for me.
All these and more are discussed here.

You can use any text editor to create an executable .py file. They are pure text. All colorizing, etc. is done on the fly.
