Recall Code Statements

Press Alt-P to recall the previous code statement entered into IDLE, or press Alt-N to move to the next code statement (assuming there is one). Both key combinations can be used to cycle rapidly through all of the code you have entered into IDLE, re-executing any code statements as needed.

Edit Recalled Code

Once you recall your code statement, you can edit it and move around the statement using the arrow keys. It’s possible to edit any statement that you have previously entered, even code statements that span multiple lines.
