Package: pyspread
Version: 1.99.2-2
Severity: normal

Dear Andreas,

Thanks for pyspread.

I installed version 1.99.2-2.

I tried an example in its tutorial.

    pyspread->Help->Tutorial says

        "Select the top-left cell and type: python 1 + 5 * 2"

    but when I type

        python 1 + 5 * 2

    in cell [0, 0, 0], pyspread complains with

        "invalid syntax (<unknown>, line1)"

    I expected to see


    So, I checked the documentation on line at

    It suggests typing

        1 + 5 * 2

    (no "python " ).

    It works!


Maybe the tutorial in debian's package should be
more like the Quick Start Tutorial online at
