Samir,

Here's what I get...

Python 2.2.1 (#34, Apr  9 2002, 19:34:33) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IDLE 0.8 -- press F1 for help
>>> print int(5.0)
5
>>> 

Michael

You should us verbose output, but not your input.  Are you really sure
that's what the program said?  If so, your Python installation is
seriously broken.
