[SOLVED] python SyntaxError

Hi all!
Trying to start learning python and having the following problem:

$ python
Python 3.2.2 (default, Nov 21 2011, 16:50:59) 
[GCC 4.6.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> print "hello world"
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    print "hello world"
                      ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>

The same happens if I run /usr/bin/python3 instead of the symlink.

Searching the forum for this problem was not succesfull, therefore I would like to ask for help to fix this.

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] python SyntaxError

use python2 instead of python, which is python 3.x . There are some syntax changes between python 2.x and 3.x

Wrong forum. Moved to Programming & Scripting.
