Installing, running and explaining this program would be almost enough:

#!/usr/bin/python

import MySQLdb

# Create a connection object and create a cursor
Con = MySQLdb.Connect(host="silo.cs.indiana.edu", port=14298, user="dgerman", passwd="sp00n", db="demoOne")
Cursor = Con.cursor()

# Make SQL string and execute it
sql = "SELECT * FROM students"
Cursor.execute(sql)

# Fetch all results from the cursor into a sequence and close the connection
Results = Cursor.fetchall()

print Results

Con.close()
I would expect you to know, of course, that the program requires this minimal setup.
