Simple scripts that print to a console, or read from it, works best if
you run them from a standard Command Prompt window.
If you just click on a Python script in the explorer, Windows will
create a temporary command window, and remove it when the program is
done. This is standard Windows behaviour; to get around this in a
general way, you need to write GUI-oriented Python programs (using e.g.
Tkinter or wxPython), and run them using the "pythonw.exe" runtime.
For simpler scripts, you can also add
raw_input("Press return to close this window...")
to the end of the script.
