your program is working fine. your expectation
is that you'll see something, but your program
has no print statements, just three statements:
5 # well, okay, 5 it is, says the interpreter
x = 5 # roger, x now references the value 5
x + 1 # okey dokey, i'll add 1 to x, which is now 6
but nowhere do you have a print statement to
put stuff on the screen so the user can see.
print x = 5
print x + 1
we had an interesting discussion about the
above statements (mainly the second).
