The section "Command line usage" says:

> idle.py [-c command] [-d] [-e] [-s] [-t title] [arg] ...

There is no ‘idle.py’, the command is ‘idle’.

> If the script name is ‘-‘, no script is executed but an interactive Python session is started; the arguments are still available in sys.argv.

{ idle -; } waits for standard input.
