I have been following along with the MMOOC course but I have tried to do what I can without actually downloading IDLE, compiling my code in the Python environment provided by Codecademy's labs. This has gone smoothly until I tried running the Hangman game project, which requires a "words.txt" file. Although I was able to follow the instructions and get the game to work with the fixed secret word "claptrap", it seems that I cannot carry out Step 8 in the lab environment. Is there an efficient way to incorporate "words.txt" into the Hangman game using codecademy's lab environment?

    I don't think so...writing a file needs disk space, though of course, you could maybe make a virtual disk somewhere in the cloud...but it's less work.

    I'm just curious, why CC labs and not IDLE? I found their labs not so, ... 'good'... to work with.... (especially since i found pyScripter! )

    Agree with petew71. You don't have much control over the Python environment in CC. Trying to figure out what went wrong behind scenes can be a nightmare. I have pyscripter installed also, but am using IDLE for this course since I wanted to minimize distractions and concentrate mainly on Python not on one or more IDEs.

    IDLE is just an editor. Your computer probably has one or more plain text editors already. In other words, you don't really need IDLE If you have Windows, and have downloaded Python, or you have a Mac or *nix box, you already have IDLE.
