Hey, everyone, I am new to programming and just downloaded Python 2.6 onto
my windows vista laptop. I am attempting to follow 4.11 of the tutorial
called "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python v2nd
Edition documentation" (
http://openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english2e/ch04.html). However, I
am having some trouble. I am trying to use pydoc to search through the
python libraries installed on my computer but keep getting an error
involving the $ symbol.

$ pydoc -g
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Can anyone help me out?
