Newbie has softie python question starting project dmoz

I just started this scrapy tutorial:

The first step is to create a dmoz directory so i wrote “scrapy startproject dmoz” in my command prompt. I got this response:

File “<stdin>”, line 1
scrapy startproject dmoz

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

There was an up arrow under the t in project.

Any ideas.


You’re trying to execute a command through the python interpreter. The command needs to be executed through the command line.
