Try:

D:\>python "1.py"

(provided the python.exe is somewhere in your path).

Cheers,


Pieter

Hi all,

I have read that Python is a good first language so I downloaded it and am
wading through a tutorial.  But I'm having silly problems that I can't work
out.

I run Win2k.  Python is in a folder called d:\python.  also in there is a
file called 1.py

At the command prpmpt, I cd to d:\python run python and enter python 1.py.
Error message is:

>>> python 1.py
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    python 1.py
            ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>

Clearly I'm doing something wrong but what?

All help appreciated!
