Using Python 3.2.3
In shell I made a simple program; dog=2,cat=3,cow=dog+cat
Entered cow and received 5 as answer
Saved-as in a user folder
Went to folder and select "edit with shell" for that file displayed, clicked save, run and then run module to activate program
got message in box "syntax error" and after I clicked OK the #2 in the heading 
Python 3.2.3 was high-lighted
 in red and the "or" and "for" words were changed to red letters and program 
seems to be text only.
In other words, I am not able to re-use or change the program

Help needed.
John, a beginner
