Python Quick Start

To use Python, developers must first create text files with the extension .py in a text editor before running them through the Python interpreter since Python is an interpreted programming language.

For executing a Python file via the command line, simply utilize the given command:

C:\Users\Your Name>python helloworld.py

It is imperative that you use the file name "helloworld.py" for your Python file. This requirement must not be disregarded.

Let's write our first Python file, helloworld.py, which can be done in any text editor.

File name helloworld.py
Syntax print("Hello, World!")
Now Try it Yourself.>>

Simple as that. Save your file. To gain access to your command prompt, kindly navigate to the directory where your file is saved and enter the prescribed commands below:

C:\Users\Your Name>python helloworld.py

The output should read:

Hello World!

Congratulations! Well done! You have accomplished the task of creating and executing your very first Python program.
