For assignment 0, I put ';' between commands but how do you do this for long programs without having invalid syntax? Am I missing something?
Are you typing in a window called "Python Shell"?
no I only have the 1 window (on Mac terminal). Do you know how I can get that?
It sounds like you're not running IDLE -- use that to develop. More broadly, you can generally type multi-line commands without invalid syntax. Python knows when another line can come in, and it looks for indentation to see if it is indeed a continuation.
And, ideally, you will mostly write your code in a text file that you then run using python. That way you can save the code and such.
Ok thank you. What is the advantage of using IDLE then?
IDLE includes a text editor that helps keep track of indentation and highlights keywords in different colors to make the code easier to read.
great I'm looking for it now. Thanks!
