FAQ
Pytho-logicians:

Before I crack open the source, I'm wondering if I overlooked some simple
way to make the font bigger and set the background color to a light grey.
Does anyone have, like, a patch?

    changing font size is pretty simple:

    - goto the directory where IDLE is usually stored (It's
    C:\Python20\Tools\idle on my windoze system)

    - look to one of two files that directory:
    - config-win.txt [for windoze]
    - config-unix.txt [for unix]

    and change the font size accordingly. [I like Verdana, 8pt]

    [for the background color, I'm affraid you're gong to have to dig into the
    source]

    we got it.

    Tip 1: background color's in 'config.txt'.

    Tip 2: Get the latest IDLE ;-)
