>>> a = 6       ## set a variable in this interpreter session
>>> a           ## entering an expression prints its value
>>> a + 2
>>> a = 'hi'    ## 'a' can hold a string just as well
>>> a'hi'
>>> len(a)      ## call the len() function on a string
>>> a + len(a)  ## try something that doesn't work
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in 
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects>>> 
a + str(len(a)) 
## probably what you really wanted
>>> foo         ## try something else that doesn't work
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in 
NameError: name 'foo' is not defined
