Still having trouble with IDLE. It shouldn't be constantly not responding and taking up 70% of the CPU when I just click on the window and start typing.
Looked into using Eclipse with PyDev; either it or I can't properly find the Python interpreter.
Looked into using Eric, but couldn't install one of the prerequisites because it appears that there's a piece of it missing.
It's possible to use the Unix terminal, but it doesn't like having multi-line scripts pasted into it.
