Re: [opensuse] python question

I am looking to get started on learning python. Any python programmers out there?

My number 1 question is, what is your preferred IDE? I am looking at a medium sized project (for my experience) and I expect I will need some good troubleshooting tools that also give syntax help.

I have read that Eclipse is a really good IDE for python, even though it is mostly used for java, and that PyDev adds lots of features to Eclipse. But there are other recommendations also.

Anyone have any thoughts on what you have used and prefer? Advantages and disadvantages?

I started to look at Python, but I am turned off by the necessity to indent scrupulously. I am used to the original BASIC language and Turbo PASCAL, which I like better than BASIC, since it has

the CASE statement. Is there a version of Python that doesn't require this nonsense, or is there a Linux Python editor that does this automatically?

(I admit that it's a few years since I last looked, and also that I don't really need it for anything, since I've been retired for 15 years or so, but I'm still interested.)
