Oh, not your words, Python's words would suffice :).

Indeed, but just posting (and cut/paste *is* an option here) the input
that generated the error would be much more than "words". For example, 
I have to assume that you got that message from an interactive session, 
because you seem to imply no traceback was given by Python. A lot of
guesswork, you see.

: I didn't write much in the message because I haven't got much to go on
: myself, which is why i asked all you lot

The less you understand, the more info you should give (considering
the title of your post: "newbie class troubles").

: Thanks

Oh, it's nothing at all, really.
