New submission from Daniel Harper <djharperuk at gmail.com>:
I recently downloaded the python 2.7 installer from the python website and installed it on my Mac.
When I run python2.7 in interactive mode, the tab key doesn't seem to behave as how it did in 2.6.
>> def helloWorld(name):
... ./ File "<stdin>", line 2
IndentationError: expected an indented block
When you hit tab it seems to think I want to browse the contents of the current directory I'm in, rather than placing a tab character so I can quickly use python in interactive mode to prototype stuff.
I'd imagine it's something to do with GNU readline, but I'm pretty sure I have this installed
