Eclipse, Python and PythonCard

As an experiment I grabbed the latest PythonCard code from CVS using Eclipse. Then, with bated breath, I ran it. Blow me if it didn't work;

We like Eclipse. ;-)

I also have started looking at Eclipse for Python. I decided to try what you had done. No go. When Eclipse starts up the PythonCard samples script using Python2.3, python can't find the PythonCard directory. Is there some configuration option I'm missing? How did you get it to work so effortlessly?

You might also like to try Boa Constructor - a rich and mature development environment for python in the same vein. It handles GUI construction.

BTW I haven't actually tried PythonCard, so I can't say which is better.
