Attachments won't make it through to the list, Yossif. But your code is
basically something like this:
# calculate stuff
if __name__ == '__main__':
In that case, the program starts (in a console window), runs, prints the
result, and then closes. You've got a few simple ways of seeing the output:
* Run the program from the command line (start a console window in the
directory where the code is and type "ss7calc.py")
* Instead of use sys.exit immediately, add input("Press enter...") to
the end of your code:
result = main()
* set the PYTHONINSPECT environment variable for your user
* Use a shebang line "#!python -i" (without the quotes) at the top of
These last two options will drop into the Python interpreter after your
code has run.
