problem: saving files in IDLE

Discussion in 'Python' started by Florian Wellner, Jun 27, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I've got a Problem when I want to save a .py file in
    Idle. Most times it works, but sometimes I can't save
    my file. In the "Python Shell" Window, I get the message:

    Exception in Tkinter callback
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File
    "/var/tmp/python-2.2.2-build//usr/lib/python2.2/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line
    1343, in __call__
    return apply(self.func, args)
    File "/usr/lib/idle/IOBinding.py", line 136, in save_as
    if self.writefile(filename):
    File "/usr/lib/idle/IOBinding.py", line 151, in writefile
    chars = str(self.text.get("1.0", "end-1c"))
    UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

    What can I do?


    Thanks,
    Tom

    Try to upgrade to Python 2.3 (CVS if possible) since this
    containes idle 1.0beta2 and is IMHO much better.
