What do you mean when you say you ran the program in the terminal? Do 
you mean that you opened a terminal window and then typed 'python 
myprog.py'? Or did you click on the python file and choose 'run in 
terminal' or similar? That output looks to me like what happens on 
OSX when a terminal window is open but the shell has been closed.

I think the instruction to run in a terminal should look like:
1) open the terminal (how to do this depends on your OS).
2) type 'cd /path/to/my/script/folder' and then hit enter.
3) type 'python script.py' and then hit enter.

Is that similar to what you're doing?
