[SOLVED] SyntaxError: multiple statements found while compiling a single statement

I'm in Python 3.3 and I'm only entering these 3 lines:

import sklearn as sk
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

I'm getting this error:

SyntaxError: multiple statements found while compiling a single statement

What could I be doing wrong?

Edit: If anyone comes across this question, the solution I found was to download Idlex and use its IDLE version, which allows multiple lines.

In the shell, you can't execute more than one statement at a time:

>>> x = 5

SyntaxError: multiple statements found while compiling a single statement

You need to execute them one by one:

>>> x = 5
>>> y = 6

When you see multiple statements are being declared, that means you're seeing a script, which will be executed later. But in the interactive interpreter, you can't do more than one statement at a time.

how to get javascript class properties list

I have javascript this class :class Student { constructor(name, birthDate) { = name; this.birthDate = birthDate; } get age() { return 2018 - this.birthDate; } display() { console.log(`name ${}, birth date: ${this.birthDate}`); }}console.log(;The issue is that you're using Object.getOwnPropertyNames wrong.

Public types cant be declared in class modules

I want to create a function in a VBA (access) class module which returns a result type. Like this:Public Type CheckResult isOk As Boolean errorText As StringEnd TypePublic Function Check() As CheckResult ...end functionThis function is used in a lot of different places. But the compiler tells me, that it is not allowed to declare public types in class modules? Why is this? Where to put my Type instead? Should I create a new module just for this type? Or is it better to create a "AllTypes"-Module to put all Type-declarations in? As for the Why question:Class modules ...
