    Hello Patrick

    you can know everything about PyS60 from installation to coding help from this wiki article.

    Moreover there are some good links in my signature which you can follow for some tutorials.

    Do you mean to use Python for PC as an IDE? or what exactly do you mean by - I want to write programs in Python on my PC - Python scripts meant for PC cannot be run on mobile devices (at least not all)

    Links in the signature might help.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Ideally I would like to use my PC to edit scripts/source code and run/test it on the S60 emulator (which I already have) before installing the program on my Nokia 7610.

    My problem is that there are so many possible downloads that I am not sure which one(s) I require.

    Please point me in the right direction if you can.

    Thanks

    Hello Patrick

    Ya you are true there are plenty of options are available i personally use the editor that comes with core Python i.e. Python idle and that works good for me yet.

    Moreover there is also a eclipse plugin available which is good and to test it you need to transfer it to the emulator or device where you will get a result.

    Re: Where To Start

    All

    Ok so I installed Python on my PC. Can I use any text editor to write a script? Can I run it on my PC? How? Where do I need to store it on my mobile so that it appears as an icon? Do I need to make a SIS file and then install it on the mobile? Where do I need to put files so that they are available in the emulator? Is there a guide somewhere which explains the steps to take to get a simple script from development on a PC to execution on a mobile device?

    Regards

    Patrick

    i guess you have not visited the link which i posted in my first post in this thread.

    Moreover when you install python you will get the Python idle installed in your PC you can edit scripts using that and to check that in your PC you need the S60 emulator with Python Plugin in it.

    And if you want to check it in device first install the Python runtime and scriptshell and transfer your python scripts to the device and check them there.

    Hope this helps you.

    enjoy pythoning
