I've used full-function IDEs from MS Visual Studio to JBuilder to now
Eclipse to manage large C++ and Java projects (tens to hundreds of thousands
of lines of code, and hundreds of source files) over the last 10-15 years.

For me, for my large Python projects, WingIDE has been very useful to me.
Source code completion (even into libraries), pull up instance docs on the
method, etc. and in-place debugging are all things I've just gotten used
to.  So for me, WingIDE is worth it for my productivity.  I've used it for
several years.

I still use text editors for little stuff...emacs or vi, even gedit on
GNOME, as needed, but for projects, I use WingIDE.

(I have a 50% discount code good until the end of the month if you do go
with WingIDE...Stephan of WingWare offered it to our new Python User's
Group, I don't get anything from it...just email me).

Best Regards,
