Here are some example simple programs. Please feel free to contribute, but see notice at bottom, please.

These examples assume version 2.6 or above of Python.
You should be able to run them simply by copying/pasting the code into a file (named for example test.py) and running python test.py.

Hi, I started this page in May 2007, and I provided the first 10+ or so examples (which may have changed since then). -- SteveHowell

All code on this page is open source, of course, with the standard Python license.

Minor cleanups are welcome, but if you want to do major restructuring of this page, please run them by the folks on the Python mailing list, or if you are impatient for a response, please just make your own copy of this page. Thanks, and I hope this code is useful for you!

Some goals for this page:

 1. All examples should be simple.
 2. There should be a gentle progression through Python concepts.
