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.

Run your script

  • Open the cmd prompt again
  • cd to your desktop
  • python hello.py

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.
