Hi, I'm new to Python and having difficulty opening my .py file (ex1.py).
In the command prompt I cd to the folder containing the file and when I try to open it nothing happens. The prompt just gives me a new line. It looks like this...
1. I open the prompt
2. "cd" to "c:\users\me\practicepython" (where my py file is located)
3. I then type ex1.py (the file contains "hello world")
4. I have also tried typing "python ex1.py"
5. The prompt does nothing, just returns with the commandline "c:\users\me\practicepython"
I can open Python by typing "python", I can edit the py file (ex1.py) but for some reason it will not execute within the prompt. Python is added to my Path as well. I am at a loss for what to do, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks !
