I just tried pydev. It's good, but there is one thing that I want to do and can't find how:
I create a function in the editor, start a python console, then try to use the function but I can't.
I also can't import the file I am editing.
Can someone explain how does the console work?
To get your current editor contents, right now you have to write the execfile yourself:
I think that's the only difference in Pydev extensions regarding the console ( http://fabioz.com/pydev/manual_adv_interactive_console.html ) -- it adds a shortcut to start the console and to make that execfile.
Hi, I'm taking a class on Python and the compiler used in class does not work correctly on my computer. I've used eclipse for C and Java and I figured I could try Python with it as well. The issue is the stuff we do in class, they give us a pre-written script and have us enter different inputs in the console to see what results. I've figured out how to open the console but when I try to use any functions they don't work. I also have PyDev extensions installed too. Is there anyway to have this work without having to manually create the execfile?
You could just copy/paste you code directly there... (although the execfile should work: in the extensions: ctrl+alt+enter will do the execfile for you)
I also have this problem. I only have the opensource version but have purchased the extensions, I am waiting on the key!
I tried the first suggestion offered above but no success.
Maybe I should wait on my license key and it will work, I can get it to work from PythonWin
