    yes


    I think all (but I'm not sure) of the python installs available at www.python.org come with Idle.

    I don't see why not, anyhow... Idle is possibly one of the best features of the install, it's basically the best way to learn Python!

    I'm not sure what Idle has to do with saving your programs... but no matter, hope I answered your question

    Cv is right, Idle/IdleFork comes with both the Linux/Unix and Windows versions of Python.. as far as i know there is no IDE in MacPython since Tkinter doesn't run under Mac OS.. but as a rule its safe to assume that Idle/IdleFork will be present!

    ..so i can save some of my programs..
    One of the best things about interpreted languages like Python and perl is that you can write programs in any text editor! So you don't need Idle to write your Python programs.. it sounds like you've been playing with the Python shell and you want a way to save your sessions, right?
