> syntax error, invalid syntax is what i got

Ajay, you're going to have to try a bit harder. Can
you cut-and-paste the output from an interpreter session
into an email and send it? It's very hard to guess what's
going to go wrong from a small piece of code which can't
possibly run by itself, and the fact that you're
seeing a "syntax error, invalid syntax".

This is the kind of thing (although obviously
relevant to your program):


ActivePython 2.2.3 Build 227 (ActiveState Corp.) based on
Python 2.2.3 (#42, Nov 13 2003, 09:57:55) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> x = 1
>>> b = 1|
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    b = 1|
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
