NAME

IDLE - An Integrated DeveLopment Environment for Python  

SYNTAX

idle [-d] [filename(s)]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the idle command. This manual page was written for Debian because the original program does not have a manual page. For more information, refer to IDLE's help menu.

IDLE is an Integrated DeveLopment Environment for Python. IDLE is based on Tkinter, Python's bindings to the Tk widget set. Features are 100% pure Python, multi-windows with multiple undo and Python colorizing, a Python shell window subclass, a debugger. IDLE is cross-platform, i.e. it works on all platforms where Tk is installed.

 

OPTIONS

-d
Debug mode
filename(s)
Specifies the file(s) to open when IDLE starts. IDLE will open up each file in a separate window.

In any case, Python will open up a Python shell window where one can interactively evaluate Python code.

NAME

idle - make process 0 idle  

SYNOPSIS

#include <unistd.h>

int idle(void);  

DESCRIPTION

idle() is an internal system call used during bootstrap. It marks the process's pages as swappable, lowers its priority, and enters the main scheduling loop. idle() never returns.

Only process 0 may call idle(). Any user process, even a process with superuser permission, will receive EPERM.  

RETURN VALUE

idle() never returns for process 0, and always returns -1 for a user process.  

ERRORS

EPERM
Always, for a user process.
 

VERSIONS

Since 2.3.13 this system call does not exist anymore.  

CONFORMING TO

This function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable.
