this is an actual exert from a tutorial i got off the net.
Programming tutorials since the beginning of time have started with a
little program called Hello, World! So here it is:
print "Hello, World!"
If you are using the command line to run programs then type it in with
a text editor, save it as hello.py and run it with ``python
Otherwise go into IDLE, create a new window, and create it as in
When this program is run here's what it prints:
i did evrything that it asked me to do but i keep getting syntax
errors. i tried running it in DOS but it then gives me a bad command
or file name error.
I want to get this fixed b/c how can i use progs with out being able
to run them?
