Re: Interactive mode not very useful
Not really. But then if you have a syntax error, your code can't be
executed anyway, so why stay in the interpreter? It would be nice if it
let you correct the error, but it doesn't. That's why I seldom use the
interpreter in interactive mode, and even then only for programs of a
In Windows, once you've reentered the interpreter, you can use the
up/down arrow keys to scroll through the keyboard buffer. When you're
in the interpreter you'll have the lines previously entered in the
buffer. A bit awkward, but it does help a little.
Otherwise, I just use an editor to create a file and leave the editor
window open while I test the script.
