I don't have the book, so I don't know, but if it says to do the above, the
book is broken.

I will assume you are on Windows.

>>> is the python prompt. It means you are already in python.

What you want is to call the line from the OS prompt (on Windows, the DOS
prompt).

So your line should actually look something like:

C:\>python spam.py -i eggs -o bacon
^^^^

Note the prompt! It has a drive letter in it (this will be different on
other platforms).

For other FAQs ... http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html.

The above question *really* needs to be added to the FAQ (PSF members!)
