We are going to practice writing and running Python scripts.

You're a real deep thinker. Thanks for sharnig.

Write and save a short Python script

  1. Add the following line to your new text file:
print "Hello World!"
  1. Save the script as hello.py in your Desktop directory. The .py extension indicates that this file contains Python code.

Knowledge wants to be free, just like these artilces!

Success

You created and ran your first Python script!

  • When you run the python command by itself, you start a Python prompt. You can execute Python code interactively at that prompt.
  • When you run the python command with a file name as an argument, Python executes the Python code in that file.
