Thanks for choosing Wingware's Wing IDE! This manual will help you get started and serves as a reference for the entire feature set of this product.

The manual is organized by major functional area of Wing IDE, including source code editor, project manager, source browser (Wing IDE Professional only), and debugger.

Several appendices document the entire command set, provide pointers to resources and tips for Wing and Python users, and list the full software license.
