things that work in terminal mode but not in sublime mode
I noticed, as an example in the Python Crash Course book . . . on pags 23 when usng terminal mode for the favorite_language example ( for .rstrip(), etc. ), it works flawlessly for me in terminal mode but I can't get it to work in sublime text,how come ?

What is/define “terminal mode” and “can’t get to work in sublime text”

So if i take a quick look at book.
>>> favorite_language = ' python '
>>> favorite_language.rstrip()
' python'
>>> favorite_language.lstrip()
'python '
>>> favorite_language.strip()
So here(in book) run code in interactive interpreters,because of >>>
For sublime there is SublimeREPL

If running the same over as script/code save as eg
favorite_language = ' python '
favorite_language = favorite_language.rstrip()
So interactive interpreters(REPL) is for shorter code testing where you see result immediately.
Write real code there is no >>> and have use print() to show the result.
Run Python 3 on Sublime Text (Mac)
As mention before you don't have to Sublime Text even if that what author use.
I do see the same results you see "snippsat". In terminal mode & Sublime text mode.
That is what I don't understand, in the terminal mode on line 3 the results show the right apostrophe moves left by one, because of .rstript() in line 2.
But in the Sublime Text mode ,after using print both apostrophes are gone in the output, because of .rstript(), in line 2.
How come in Subline text mode, the output dosen't shift by one on the rightside apstrophe to the left like in terminal mode ? Instead it gets rid of both apostrophes?

Other question, what do you recommend instead of using Sublime text?

Thanks for your help, Al
print() will not show apostrophe.
So if doing this will see nothing,but it still working as left space is gone.
favorite_language = ' python '
favorite_language = favorite_language.lstrip()
favorite_language = ' python '
favorite_language = favorite_language.lstrip()
# Using repr will see all,same as see in interactive interpreter
python 'python '

I like VS Code(Free) unlike Sublime text(have to pay to get all features),have a tutorial here.
