Under the "Edit" menu, you'll find a "Run Script" option. You can do
the "Run Script" thing directly by hitting Control-F5. This works from
the Editor window (where you are editing your script) but it doesn't
work from the "*Python Shell*" window.

After you do "import mymodule" and then later make changes in,
type "reload(mymodule)" to pick up the changes. Be sure to save the file
first, but IDLE should warn you if you've forgotten to save it.
