I wrote up a script in my preferred text editor. It contains maybe ten
lines of code. I want to be able to execute those code lines with a
single command either from the inline mode or from IDLE. How do I do
this? I saved the file (myscript.py) in a folder that I've specified

<module 'myscript' from 'c:\documents and settings\t_crane\my

wanted. But no, it just highlights 'myscript' in red and says it's a
What am I missing?
