Ok, literally my first day of learning Python. I am working my own way through Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner and am encountering my first glitch. I downloaded 3.3.1 and am just starting to play around.
When I run my program in the Python Shell it works as it is supposed to. But the book tells me to try saving these snippets occasionally and running them through the console window. When I do that the console closes after I type my name and hit enter, no "Hi etc etc"
name=input("What's your name?")
input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")
Am I doing something wrong or do I just not understand what I'm doing yet and this is perfectly normal?
