[New-bugs-announce] [issue34451] docs: tutorial/introduction doesn't mention toggle of prompts

New submission from Jonathan Fine <jfine2358 at gmail.com>:

Interactive code examples need the prompt to be stripped, before copy-and-paste. This is explained in https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/introduction.html

But this page does not tell us about the [>>>] prompt-toggle at top of each interactive code example. This caused a user error, reported in  https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2018-August/052869.html.

The [>>>] toggle isn't in the Python 2.7 docs, so nothing to fix there!
