How do I rerun a progrom outside the shell?

P: 39
I wrote a very basic program to calculate the slope of a pipe

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. firstElev = input ("Enter first elevation")
  2. secondElev = input ("Enter second elevation")
  3. length = input ("Enter Length")
  4.  
  5. promil = ((firstElev - secondElev)/length)*1000
  6.  
  7. print "Promil =",promil
  8.  
Currently I run the program in the python shell and have to run it every time I need it to calculate the slope.
This can be tedious when I have many slopes to calculate.
How can I:
1. Have the program run outside the shell in it's own window
2. Have the program keep running until I type something like 'quit'?
