Your first problem has nothing to do with exception handling.
The culprit is Line 4:
>                 x = int(x) and x>  0
I suppose that you forgot a second equal sign between x and int(x). If
it were
>                x == int(x) and x > 0
it would have worked as expected. But this would not trigger any
exception, if X is a number. So let's add one:
>                if not (x == int(x) and x > 0): raise(ValueError)

Hope that helps,

FrancescoHello Francesco,I change it to this :def readposint():
x = raw_input("Please enter a positive integer :")
try:
if not (x == int(x) and x < 0): raise(ValueError)
except:
print x , "is not a positive integer.  Try again."
return False
return Truey = readposint()
print y
while y == False:
readposint()
print "You have entered : ", yBut -9 and 2 are both true.Roelof
