Hi Peter,

Does your programm produce any output? E. g. via print statements? (Or 
does it only
define functions?)

Or is it a GUI-Program using Tkinter? In this case IDLE 1.0 behaves 
different form
the older versions.

If you sent a short sample-program showing your problem, more precise 
help could be given.

Regards, Gregor
