Hey I got myself a couple books from the library and have been looking around the web and I cant figure out how to save python programs from the interpreter. It seems like every tutorial is using IDLE because they are instructing me to use file>save as, well with a linux terminal you dont have that option and I'm failing to figure out what command to use. Is it a python command or a linux command? Should my actual code writing be done in a text editor like Gedit, Kate or nano?
To my understanding most developers use the interpreter for its speed and convenience as a test platform so there has to be a way to save it right? Should I just get IDLE even though I'm pretty certain it's unneccessary? I try to stay away from using the GUI for things so I get a deeper understanding of how things actually work)
