Fwd: [pinoy-python-users] Dreampie - a new graphical shell for Python

kirby urner-4
Anyone here on edu-sig have experience with the product below
(appended from user group traffic)?

I've been away on math-teach duty, expostulating on tetrahedral
mensuration again, the intersection with Python + VPython (or Python +
POV-Ray) being polyhedra, vector objects etc.


I don't get coherent / articulate objections to these proposals, so
it's not like I'm countering specific arguments.  The National Council
of Teachers of Mathematics seems to have come around.


math-thinking-l has gone back to sleep.

This essay remains one of my strongest, re a type-based
object-oriented approach to algebra (what the functional programmers
will probably want to shoot down):


Today's concern is how to counter the stereotype of Computational Math
as purely sedentary.

Doing mathematics and doing physically strenuous activities should not
always been considered opposite ends of the spectrum.

Just found out a new Python shell from the mailing list. Here is a
feature in a breeze from the author himself

I'm pleased to announce DreamPie 1.0 - a new graphical interactive
Python shell!

Some highlights:

* Has whatever you would expect from a graphical Python shell -
attribute completion, tooltips which show how to call functions,
highlighting of matching parentheses, etc.
* Fixes a lot of IDLE nuisances - in DreamPie interrupt always works,
history recall and completion works as expected, etc.
* Results are saved in the Result History.
* Long output is automatically folded so you can focus on what's
* Jython and IronPython support makes DreamPie a great tool for
exploring Java and .NET classes.
* You can copy any amount of code and immediately execute it, and you
can also copy code you typed interactively into a new file, with the
Copy Code Only command. No tabs are used!
* Free software licensed under GPL version 3.

Check it out at http://dreampie.sourceforge.net/ and tell me what you

Have fun,
