The Python Scripting tool has two main features: the Python Console or Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and the Python Navigator.
The Console IDE allows users to create their own scripts and promote them to their own Navigator, while the Python Navigator allows access to the resultant ‘program’. Scripts can be distributed for use in Navigator or IDE and can be pin protected or encrypted if desired.
