  1. It works! Thanks a lot 🙂

    Q: I tried python and got hello world and an answer to a sum OK – like yours, works fine.

    But when I tried python3.2 , I got syntax error at the closing " of "hello world" – any ideas?

    I had already downloaded 3.23 from Then when I tried python3.23 , I got bash command not found…

  2. Thanks so much man. After 30 minutes in TextWrangler manual, I was no closer to getting my program to run. So big thanks from an old Vic-20 BASIC programmer getting back into programming with Python.
    As a side note to others. If you want to run a different version of Python, type python3.1 for example to run Python 3.1 (if installed). Otherwise it will run maybe an older version.
