I recently downloaded the newer version of python, the 2.5.1 one, and when ever i try to make an input what ever i type into the brackets appears on the next line and when i try to add the next line it carries on from the input,This is what happens:

I type this down:

# Area calculation program

>>>print “Welcome to the Area calculation program”
>>>print “–––––––––––––”

>>># Print out the menu:
>>>print “Please select a shape:”
>>>print “1  Rectangle”
>>>print “2  Circle”

>>># Get the user’s choice:
shape = input(“>30 “)
>30 (and then this line appears)
(here i should type "# Calculate the area:" but it carries on from the above line and when i press enter i encunter an error and it all goes wrong)
please help me with this problem.
