 Here's what I get:

MacBook-001FF3569577-4:~ fedka2$ /Applications/Python\ 3.2
-bash: /Applications/Python 3.2: is a directory
MacBook-001FF3569577-4:~ fedka2$ python ./idle.py
can't open file './idle.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
MacBook-001FF3569577-4:~ fedka2$

I don't seem to be getting a terminal prompt after dragging the folder
into the shell??
Thanks again
