    Does anyone know a way to automatically load modules in IDLE at

    I can set %PYTHONSTARTUP% but this only works for the interactive
    prompt, not in IDLE. I tried doing the same thing with %IDLESTARTUP%
    but received no joy.

    What am I missing? Or has this capability been removed on 2.3?
