New submission from Matthew Brunt <mbrunt12 at gmail.com>:

i'm very new to python (currently going through a python for beginners book at work to pass the time), and i'm having trouble with an if statement exercise.  basically, i'm creating a very simple password program that displays "Access Granted" if the if statement is true.  the problem i'm having is that no matter what i set the password to, it seems like it's ignoring the if statement.  the code is copied below, and i greatly appreciate any input.

# Granted or Denied
# Demonstrates an else clause

print("Welcome to System Security Inc.")
print("-- where security is our middle name\n")

password = input("Enter your password: ")

if password == "a":
    print("Access Granted")

input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")
