Hi list,
new here. I just wanted to give Stackless Python a try. I started with 
2.6.5, because my latest "ordinary" Python installation was a 2.6.1. I'm 
a Windows user. Download and installation went fine. I started to write 
a small script, copied from the stackless page. Strange enough, it had 
some problems with types, ending with a "?" (never seen that before in 
Python). However, I thought I had an issue with 2.6.5, deinstalled it 
all, downloaded 3.1.1 and installed it. Now the things are getting 
really worse: This is the trace of a small console:

Python 3.1.1 Stackless 3.1b3 060516 (release31-maint, Oct  3 2009, 
16:29:47) [MS
C v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import stackless
 >>> def print_x(x):
...   print x
  File "<stdin>", line 2
    print x
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Hmm. What the hell is wrong with "print x"? By the way: Every print 
command ends up in "Invalid syntax". That's really fun :)
