For windows I would recommend using the Pythonwin IDE that is part of
www.activestate.com/activepython. [There was I think a standalone
distro of Pythonwin although I don't know of its status].
- Pythonwin is an excellent GUI ide - on Windows most people don't
like the commandline, and especially on the 9x/ME series the
commandline is seriously lacking in features. It has a builtin editor
with syntax highlighting, folding, etc. It has a nice debugger. It
integrates with SourceSafe etc.
- Searchable (CHM) Helpfiles
- ActivePython has much deeper Windows integration. (eg, you can use
COM objects in it, use it for client-side browser scripting and all
sorts of fine stuff)
And yes, its free too :)
