You say that confusing IDLE with Python is common for beginners, do you mean to suggest that IDLE isn't a Python interpreter? I know IDLE is essentially just an IDE and distinctly different than the python shell, but I wasn't aware the differences would affect anything. I expect my sample code would work the same in IDLE or a python file, no confusion there.

I guess I'm not sure what you mean by reducing confusion, because to me IDLE and the python shell are similar enough, and both distinctly different than executing a .py file, though both should have the same behavior right?
