When using IDLE's shell window Debug->Go to file/line,
you have to be overly careful what you select.
Specifically, if you select a region that contains a newline,
IDLE won't be able to find a file and line number.
For example, if you select
v-- from there
File "/export/h1/gpk/schoolweb.local/schoolweb/parse.py", line 199, in
^-- to there (i.e. 2 characters in, on the following line),
you will get the following error message: "No special line: X the line you
to doesn't look like a file name followed by a line number."
That is unfortunate, as it's really convenient to make a quick flick
down from one line to the next, to select a complete line.
By the way, the error box requires you to click "OK".
That's a bug. It isn't OK.
It's a crime against the King's English, committed by the minions
of Bill Gates. You should not be following their lead.
