    Python lists

    Have been trying to follow a python tutorial in the Full Circle magazine and consistently fail?

    I typed the following into my text editor "gedit"

    Code:
    #! /usr/bin/env python
    
    DaysInMonth =
    [31,28,31,30,31,30,31,31,30,31,30,31]
    
    print DaysInMonth[6] (for July)
    I saved the above as daysinmonth.py in my python_examples directory. I then opened a terminal and navigated to the python_examples directory and typed;

    Code:
    chmod +x daysinmonth.py
    Finally, still in the terminal i typed python ~/python_examples/daysinmonth.py and the output was:

    Code:
    frump@ubuntu-linux-uk:~$ python ~/python_examples/daysinmonth.py
      File "/home/frump/python_examples/daysinmonth.py", line 3
        DaysInMonth =
                    ^
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax
    frump@ubuntu-linux-uk:~$
    Would someone please tell me what i am doing wrong.
