Some messages about Python are written out together with a prompt »>, after which you can issue commands. Let us try to use the interactive shell as a calculator. 1] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. 0 The text on a line after »> is what we write (shell input) and the text without the »> prompt is the result that Python calculates (shell output). It is easy, as explained below, to recover previous input and edit the text. This editing feature makes it convenient to experiment with statements and expressions.
