comment Is there a way to disable code autocomplete in the Python window in ArcGIS 10.0
In ArcMap 10.0 there is no Tools menu. What program do you access this setting?

Thank you, exactly what I need to read!

So perhaps I shouldn't worry about inconsistency in its return value if I'm not even supposed to be using it?

What's frustrating is often I want to know why this ends up working the way it does but because of ESRI/ARC quirkiness or lack of documentation, I'll probably be spinning my wheels unless someone can shed some light.

arcpy.env.workspace is set, in the above example to D:/temp/. Should I not be referring to a feature class by a variable and instead always by a path?

comment It it possible to uninstall IDLE from a ArcGIS 10.0 install?
Nirsoft's ShellExView was not able to find the context menu shell extension for the python files in this case. Tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions, where each found extensions that the other didn't.

I removed the first four entries you mention, the fifth did not exist. Searching the registry for "IDLE" yielded no other results. Shell extension is now gone.

None. I accepted the Eclipse suggestion since that's the way I went and preferred. I only answered my own question to document the setup process. Any reason my answer should be edited into the question? Perhaps this should be a CW?

Is there much involved with getting Eclipse + PyDev to work w/ ArcGIS functionality? Other answers seem to indicate some peculiarities with using the non-Arc installed Python?
