showing improper syntax when defining wn variable
Posted 18 April 2013 - 12:14 PM
I'm currently writing a simple python program that draws and fills a star using turtle, with 'n' number of points by th user. For some reason when I run the very beginning of my code, I get a syntax error when defining my wn variable. does anyone know why this may be?

On line 3 you have more opening parentheses than closing parentheses. So it thinks line 5 is a continuation of line 3 and chokes because int(input(...)wn = turtle.Screen() is invalid syntax.
