Hi I have learned Python in the past but only through codeacademy which gives the shell. How can I get the python software which gives me the idle shell as well as give me the .py files so that I can write the scripts. Thanks

    Ok great. Sorry, I am new to this. So I already when to the downloads page of th python website and downloaded Python 2.7.10. I get the screen that has the shell. How do I get it to allow me to write a program and use the shell to run it. This is what I am confused about. Thanks

    Did you open python idle gui thing. Try opening that. Then just type code.

    Yes I did. I can declare variables etc and they all work. I need to be able to write for and while loops etc.

    did you get sublime text editor. Just download from the link above. Then type your code in the text editor. After you done typing code. Go to file -> save as. And save with a name ending with .py. To start the code go to python idle and file open and select the file

    Hi Is this what you expect me to see. The object on the left is the IDLE and the thing on the right is the text editor .py file? Not sure if I did it right. Thanks for the help
