Is there a reason you are executing them directly?  Why not just run  
the script from IDLE with Run/Run Module (F5) until you are sure  
there are no errors?  You can follow the advice already posted, by  
running it directly from the commandline.  Another hack is to put:


at the end of your script, but this is really a hack and it would be  
better to use a different solution.
