IDE console not working
the interactive console returns information based on typed commands, however the IDE doesnt execute what I've entered in.
Could someone explain if I'm doing something incorrectly?
You need to put that code in the main.py that repl created, or call it from there.
The way they compile and run your code starts with the main.py file they create, you will need to call other files/functions from there, even if they have the same name.
