Hey guys, new here.

Decided to start learning Python and this community looks like a perfect place to learn with the help of others.
A bit of a forum-related problem at the moment though, when the browser is loading "ad.amgdgt.com" it takes about 4 minutes to load each time I change page. It has taken me about half an hour just to get to the point where I can start writing this thread.. I hope it's not usually like this?

Anyway, I was planning on learning C++ as my first language (excluding a bit of Pascal in high school) but was then directed towards Python instead. I've spent a couple of days now stubbornly trying to figure out how to use Komodo Edit without help, but I think I'm going to have to give up.
It shouldn't be hard once I actually start learning Python, but at the moment I'm getting stuck at the first hurdle, setting up.

I'm using Komodo Edit 5 on Windows XP. First thing I done was read the beginners thread here and that seemed to direct me to idle.pyw, which I found, and it seems to work. But I have no idea to use it.
Google has helped me make a Run command which executes the code, but that's just temporary really, doesn't allow me to interact.

So my questions is - having taken the scenic route to get to it - How can I test out my Python code as I go?
Can't really go much further without being able to test along the way.

All help is much appreciated, hopefully I'll be able to help others in return, in the future.

If you are in a hurry to run your code, start idle, File --> New Window opens an editor window. Enter a few lines of python, then hit the F5 key : your code is running !

Yup, read that first one. It's more Komodo I'm struggling with at the moment, but thanks, I'll check those when I've figured out how to start..
