OK, changing the target line back to:
and adding a raw_input() at the bottom of the code does run the program,
and leave the output screen with data. However, the screen isn't
scroll-able. That ends up being kind of useless since I'm generating more
data than fits in the tiny little window.
So ... evidently one can't simply write a piece of Python code and
transport it to a MSWindows machine without adding code to open Windows,
etc.? I'm not too sure how to phrase the question I guess. Another way
of putting it is that it seems one is compelled to create a GUI interface
to one's code. You can't just run the code and have it open a window (or
more precisely, a particularly useful window that is resizable with
scroll bars) for program input and output?
I haven't played with MSWindows for a long time, but it also looks like
file redirection from within the MSWindows environment is also
gone. Simply setting the target line to something like:
C:\Wayde\myprogram.py argument1 > C:\Wayde\result.txt
doesn't create anything as far as I can tell.
At least one can open the DOS window and run the program that way. The
results can then be displayed using something like notepad.
