Default Python codeeditor

Hi All:

I just brought the book and it says from page 3 that we're suppose to download "Python codeeditor".

Can anybody kindly provide me with the url to download "Python Codeeditor" that the author talks about.

Yours,

Frustrated.

Actually, it says you need to download PythonCard and that codeEditor is part of that. ("...downloading PythonCard. PythonCard is a set of utilities that provides an environment for programming in Python. PythonCard is a product thatís free to use and distribute and is tailor-made for writing in Python. It contains an editor, called codeEditor.")

I'm not sure why there's no link to Python Card on our download page but here it is:

Default Python aware editor

If all you want is a python aware editor, just use the IDLE came with your python installation.

Python card has dependency on wxPython, which only has official releases for Python 2.*. I suppose you are on Python 3000.

Default wxPython

I took a quick look at wxPython code, and it is very clear that it is not Python 3000 compatible. Well the book you are reading is from 2005, and that explains it.
