I used to use python IDLE to control GRASS, but I can't make python and GRASS connected, as I described in this post:Problem with python script to control GRASS GIS from outside - How to import grass.script under Win 8.1?
So now I am thinking of using eclipse to control GRASS, trying to avoid problems I faced as I used python IDLE. But I don't know whether I will get the same problem after I use eclipse, and I can't tell the difference between using python IDLE alone and using eclipse.
I am working with GRASS 6.4.3 and python 2.7.6 under WIN 8.1.
Can you help me to make decision and furthermore, to solve the connecting problem?
