Hi, I’m new to coding and I have a simple question. I installed python and was looking at the idle and figuring out terminal, but I noticed it doesn’t have the same option as in codeacademy to run and then see where errors are. If I try to code and run a code in terminal and I have something that is wrong, will it tell me what was wrong like in the practices on codeacademy?
Hello @theprofessorsnaz, welcome to the forums! IDLE should provide you with error messages, like in the CC learning environment.
Thank you! how would i get those error messages to show? is there a button in IDLE like run that runs the code?
When you get this screen:
command + N(MacOS) or
ctl + N(Windows OS) to get a screen that looks like this:
f5or go to the toolbar, and press
run, to run your code:
You will be asked to save your code (name it, and save it to a location), then the result of the code will be shown on the first screen, including any errors.
