save codes in python

Hey guys,

do you know how to save my code in python shell, i mean every time i get into the python shell, my code is gone.. can I save it, because I really don't wanna rewrite the same code every time..

Thanks! Appreciate the help!

The shell is for testing out code. If you want to save a piece of code, you should use a file.

Saving code is precisely what files are for.

And don't worry, Kenneth will show how to run files in a future video.

Thanks for the help!
