    I am currently learning to program with the Python programming language and I have chosen Notepad++ as my IDE of choice. The thing is, I don't know how to get the scripts I am writing with N++ to execute. If i press F5 and type 'python "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"' and hit enter, a command prompt window appears for a split second and disappears again. Then I thought it might work if i make N++ send the script to IDLE which can execute it, but I'm not really sure how to do that.

    Basically anyone who can help me run a script written in Python with N++, through N++'s Run Dialog is my personal saviour and i will always think of your username when I'm successfully running my scripts  ^^
