What is "Eclipse"?
Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. Like netbeans (another IDE), it allows programmers to code in Java or C/C++ and compile their code. [Edit] Actually forgot to say that with the Pydev plug-in it can be used for Python programming too.
Actually, my message was more for Floyd & maybe I shouldn't have posted, but I thought clarification was good for all. Do you use an IDE for your Python inspired Intel Monkey? I've had a quick look at it - very nice effort mate!
At the moment I'm simply using IDLE, the editor, et al that comes with Python. I use emacs for various text stuff, but I found it slightly annoying for Python and IDLE's color coding was more convenient than emacs'. I am sure that I'll switch to a better environment further along and certainly when I pull in other languages. I should mention that I have an affinity for free (& preferably open source) tools.
Thanks for the compliment! I've been both dusting off my brain and learning new things as I go along, which is the ulterior motive. I'll be fleshing out phase 1 shortly and then making it nicer with a DB to allow faster per turn loads (no more reading everything every time) and advanced querying, which is the big goal. In that vein I'm continually cleaning up the code as I go along. And, of course, continually going through the Python docs as the laying of new foundation is allowing me to pick up new stuff on second and third passes. They've really done quite a good job with Python. BTW I loaded Python 3.3 this past weekend.
