#71 vpython startup script error

The vpython script which cd's to the example directory
and then runs $PYTHON $IDLE is hardcoded to
IDLE="idle". The python interpreter looks for a file
called "idle", but cannot find one.

the idle executable is in the path on any healty system
sou you may as well just run idle directly and avoid
this problem. Alternatively you must provide the
interpreter with the full path to the idle executable.

the vpython script is autotooled, so you may set IDLE
to $(which idle) at configure time.

Thank you
Colin Kingsley
