I’m working my way through the book Learn Python 3 the Hard Way and I made my way to exercise 23, String, Bytes, and Character Encodings. I downloaded the language.txt file and typed out the program, but when I go to run it in my MacOS shell I get nothing! No error code, syntax error, etc… just nothing as if I never typed it in to begin with. I looked over the code in Atom but didn’t see any errors and tried to look around online to see if anybody else had this problem, but since I don’t really know what i’m looking for it’s proving a little irritating. Thanks in advance for any help.
If you can post the code to https://gist.github.com/ I’ll take a look.
I actually have the same problem, my gist is

But, yours are like this:
print(raw_bytes, "<===>", cooked_string) languages = open("languages.txt", encoding="utf8") main(languages, encoding, error)
See how mine, the line starting with
Yes I just discovered indentation is important part of python in the def exercise 18. I did not indent and i got an indentation error. Also I noticed he did not type “utf-8” but “utf8”, which is not a big deal. Sorry reading this book is making me anal about typing things perfectly
