Provided you have typed your code into a new editor window - by 
selecting File->New fromthe menus. Then File->Save As... should save 
the programme

You can save the session from the interactive prompt too by doing the 
same thing, but it doesn't really help since there is no way to reload it 
again - I keep meaning to try to write a filter to allow that! 

Basically treat the >>> prompt as a scratch pad for ideas that will be 
thrown away. Anything you want to save has to be typed into a python 
programme file.
