Sounds like you might have your backspace key mapped to 'delete', which is bound to the 'clear' command under emacs mode and the 'forward-delete-char' command in normal editor mode (as set in preferences; the default is normal mode). You can at least get ^H working by adding the following line to the keymap.emacs or keymap.normal, which are at the top-level of the Wing IDE installation: 'ctrl-h': 'backward-delete-char' (I've added this to the master copies so this will be fixed in future beta releases). There might also be some other keyboard mapping problem... if you can send more info about your language / setup I might be able to replicate and figure out what other key(s) need to be added to the keymap files. > 2) Where does the print statement results go? By default, the debugger opens a new xterm and sends output there. Right now, this closes as soon as the debug session is ended so I'm guessing this is the source of the confusion. You can put a breakpoint on your last line of code to avoid having it close, or you can disable this feature in your ~/.wingide/preferences file with the following line: debug.use-xterm=false In the latter case, output will go to the window where you launched wing (which is of course problematic if you launched it from an icon or something instead of typing 'wing' from the keyboard). > 3) Segmentation fault in securechannel.py (I'm running the > current cvs version of python) I'll have to look at this. We had a problem due to changes in the sockets support code in the first (and second) 2.0 beta and there may be further changes since that time that need to be tracked. For now, I'd recommend running off one of the packaged distributions since we can't make releases fast enough to make sure things work with the latest CVS code. Of course, also let me know if you still get crashing with Python 2.0b2 (since Python 2.0 release candidate 1 just came out yesterday, we haven't yet tested with it). - Stephan ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Archaeopteryx Software, Inc.
