[Chimera-users] Adding Menu items to Python Shell

Hi Vinod,
	Chimera just adds a thin layer over the Python IDLE shell that is a standard module of Python 2.  So, to add a menu to it you would modify the IDLE code found in Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.7/idlelib.  Keep in mind that new downloads of Chimera won’t have your changes, so you might want to note what changes you made so you could reapply them to newer versions you get.
