Notes about the IDOL file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
The IDOL file type is primarily associated with 'Idle Scripting Language' by Thomas Lauer. Idle is a scripting language, in basically the same vein as Perl or Python. It is, however, a more lightweight application. At the core of Idle sits a tweaked and enhanced version of Lua. Idle inherits from Lua its language definition as well as a highly-optimised interpreter kernel (a fast compiler is included as well). Idle, like Lua, is readily extended with additional functions and libraries (which can be written either in C/C++ or in Idle itself).
