    Hello, I'm essentially a newbie in Python.
    My problem in searching the archives is not knowing what words to use to
    ask.

    I'm converting windows bat files little by little to Python 3 as I find
    time and learn Python.
    The most efficient method for some lines is to call Python like:
    python -c "import sys; sys.exit(3)"

    How do I "indent" if I have something like:
    if (sR=='Cope'): sys.exit(1) elif (sR=='Perform') sys.exit(2) else
    sys.exit(3)

    My sole result in many attempts is "Syntax Error."

    Thank you for any help.
