    If not, is there a good way to use TKinter with the ported Python?

    Thanks

    Hi Joris,
    No, ported version of Python doesn’t support TKinter. How are you going to use gui package on USS?


    Thanks,
    Tatyana

    It would also be nice to be able to use the Python IDLE IDE via X Window System from a remote terminal using e.g. MobaXterm rather than connecting with a line mode terminal to a line mode Python on USS.
    z/OS USS seems to support X Window System

    Advantage would be: display of Unicode characters

    That is rather a decision for development management …
