You mean if you run it in IDLE using F5?

This is a specific problem that happens on Windows systems when you
right-click a file and select 'edit with IDLE.'
Basically, if you want IDLE to open its subprocess connection
successfully (so that IDLE is not running in the same Python thread as
and thus hanging when your program does the same) open IDLE from the
Start menu, or from a Desktop shortcut.
Then open the particular code you're trying to edit and away-you-go.
A good indication that the subprocess is working correctly is that
every time you F5 to run a program.
P.S. In the future, if you have a question like this, try to give us
more info, such as the platform you're running, and the editor you're using.
