Well, actually, the "official" python interpreter is the python.exe that
is used by the dos prompt/doubleclick method; IDLE is a gui environment
that wraps that interpreter.
I'm not sure why you're getting that SyntaxError, however. I don't
normally use IDLE, so I don't know the usual procedure for running
scripts from it (PythonWin seems much friendlier to me, but it's a
personal preference). However, I suspect that your problem comes from
the way in which the script is run. I'm not sure where the reload() is
coming from--is that something you're typing into idle? is it internal
to idle, and happening automatically when you select a menu option?
or.... ?? I'd guess that either idle is assuming too much about your
script, which idle-fork and python.exe don't, or else you are running
the script in an incorrect fashion through idle, but idle-fork is smart
enough to figure out what you want... of course, I'm just flailing
about blindly here, so don't put *too* much faith in my guesses. ;)
