 This doesn't work like in book
Does anyone understand why these phrases:

>>>phrase = "the surprise is in here somewhere"
>>> phrase.find("surprise")
Doesn't return the number 4, when executed in the IDLE. I get he following error message: "SyntaxError: multiple statements found while compiling a single statement"

I run the 32 bit version due to... a lot of reasons that I can't change. Maybe that has something to do with it?
