Set Up Your Coding Environment
Project 3 was kind of brutal, huh? This project is quick and painless. You read about the IDLE Python development environment, which lets you save your code into a file. (No more retyping or cutting and pasting!)
IDLE uses different colors to show the syntax of the Python code you’re writing. It also has tools for commenting and indenting regions in and out. What’s commenting? You read about that, too, along with some editing features that make coding easier.
