[Tutor] running more than one python program at the same time

Hi. I started running the program in the terminal rather than IDLE. It works, and I can run several programs at the same time. The problem is that when the program is finished running, it prints:
exit status: 0

[Process completed]

And I can't access the data that the program returned. Do I need the program to be saved to a text file, or is there a way to simply print it out? It's a small amount of data, and I'd rather just print it out.
