Oops!  Here's the program:
from Tkinter import *     

root = Tk()
z = Label(root, text="Hello World!")

  Subject: [Tutor] Closing GUI program

  I have copied the following program.  When I run it, (By pressing F5 from IDLE), it displays the "Hello world" message.

  When I close the window, the "Hello world" message disappears, but it seems that the program is still running, because when I close the shell, i get the message "The program is still running.  Do you want to kill it?"

  How do I get the program to terminate when the window is closed?
