Although i don't use anything much beside IDLE,  vim for coding, AFAIK
IDLE can't do that.
IDLE opens up python shell. Within that shell you type in your script
, commands and create objects as such......The interpreter will
execute your code then.
IDLE looks like this when you fire it up.

Python 2.4 (#60, Nov 30 2004, 11:49:19) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

    Personal firewall software may warn about the connection IDLE
    makes to its subprocess using this computer's internal loopback
    interface.  This connection is not visible on any external
    interface and no data is sent to or received from the Internet.
IDLE 1.1      
>>> # this is the Python shell.
>>> l = ['spam','eggs'] # you assign and create a list variable called l
>>> l # prints the content of l. 
['spam', 'eggs']
