Turtle module for python RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,
    I am trying to import the turtle module in VS:

    import turtle # here I got this error (raceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      File ".\turtle.py", line 2, in <module>
    NameError: name 'turtle' is not defined)
    So i can't keep going with the next function calls
     s = turtle.Screen()    
     a = turtle.Turtle()
