Unfortunately, I'm not a Macintosh user, so I'm not quite sure how things
work there.  It might be that your script really is running, but may be
finishing and quitting too fast to see.  In that case, try this
code: it'll wait until you press enter:

print "Hello World!"
tmp = raw_input("Please press enter to quit")

You might want to talk to other Macintosh users at this mailing list:


They'd probably be able to help you with Macintosh-Python stuff.

Also, here's a site with a few MacPython links:
