Or use CTRL-Z to suspend the editor and fg to bring python up etc,
lots of options, but.... His post suggested he wanted to do it
all from within the python promppt - thats a tad harder!
Maybe emacs -nw would be your best bet - then you can split the
screen in text mode, run a shell in one pane(running python)
and edit the code in the other pane. However emacs may be
as big a resource hog as X....
Just a thought, Its how I used to work on Unix before I got
a workstation and had to use a real VT200....
