Latest version, (I hope!) of Raspbian.
Configured to use:
(a) Element 14 7" display in landscape mode, installed in their case.
(b) Adafruit PFC8350 RTC module with fake-hwclock disabled and un-installed.
Bluetooth enabled and paired with a Logitech K600 "TV/Media" keyboard.
Hard wired Ethernet connection.
Stock Raspberry Pi-4 power module.
I picked up a copy of Programming the Raspberry Pi (Second Edition - it was what was available in my bookstore)
Attempting to do the exercises, they expect the user to be using a python shell called IDLE - which in older versions of Raspbian were in the "Programming" menu, listed as "Python 2" and "Python 3"
This is missing in the current version of Raspbian, though IDE's like mu, Blue-Jay, (etc.), are included.
I already know that Python 2 has been depreciated and is no longer part of the current builds.
Question: What happened to the Python shell? I'm assuming that if it wasn't included, there was a good reason for it - though I was able to install idle3 using apt-get.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
