Hello, i am trying to develop an application to teach programming to
young kids in a similar way as Logo did in the past. I would like to use
an embedded Python as underlying language but this raises a problem.
The target of my app are very young kids that might be unfamiliar with
english, so i am wondering if there is a way to rename/redefine
identifiers and messages in the language of the kid.
In UCB-Logo this is very easy with the command
COPYDEF "newidentifier "oldidentifier
so all you have to do is setup a startup script to redefine all the
identifiers to the language of the user.
Is there anything similar for python? Since python would be embedded it
would not be a problem for me to do it through some API.
Also, i would need a way to debug the program, so set up breakpoints,
execute line by line, inspect variables, is there any API for this in
