[issue2049] IDLE - Restart Shell & Run Module
report at bugs.python.org
Fri Feb 8 13:34:30 CET 2008
New submission from Tal Einat:
When IDLE is run with a subprocess, add a 'Restart Shell & Run Module'
item to the 'Run' menu in editor windows. Also add Alt-F5 as a hotkey
for this item.
This is what the 'Run Module' (F5) item used to do (when there was a
subprocess). As of this patch 'Run Module' will not restart the shell
under any circumstances.
The advantages of this are that the user has more control (can run a
module in the shell either with or without restarting). It also avoids
surprising users which wouldn't expect 'Run Module' to restart the shell.
