o.K. I think I found the problem. It wasn't clearly explained. You have to enter the exponent rather then the number. E.g. enter 3 to get 1000 iterations. Have a look at the code and now it should become obvious.

I chose this because "sys.argv[0]" doesn't seem to work reliably with numbers greater 999. Consequently if it works somehow, the first output is a digit with as many zeros as requested, and that output takes a while.


edit: I just realized that I can't run the program from the command line I had to go to the program catalog <SHIFT> <1> and run it fro there

Oof! Es tuit mir leid! Yes, an exponent of 1000 would take a long time! Thank you for replying.
