print "hello world"
on your console window.
Put that in a file by itself and them import the file and the
message will print.
Thus create a file called mymessage.py containing the single
print statement above. Save it in the sitepackages folder in
your python installation(so that it can be found by python)
create a new folder and add it to your PYTHONPATH envoironment
(How to do that depends on your OS)
Now open your python prompt(or IDLE) and when you get the chevrons,
>>> import mymessage
Note no .py...
And hopefully the message
You will find lots more in the nonprogrammers tutorials on the
