As far as other programs, I'm not sure. I'm not a programmer (just
learned Python over the last few months) so I haven't tried any other
programs yet.

Ok, so save the paragraph in a file, then run the commands from the
command line EXACTLY as you have them? In other words, from command
line, type in Python, then python arg1, and python arg 2??

Forgive my ignorance, working from the command line with this stuff is
new to me. And I've never understood exactly what command line args
are. . .But I'm learning.
