Yes, that's how the language works: if you want to see output, you need to 
print it:

print some_result

On the interactive console, you get the value of the output printed for you, 
strictly as a convenience.  You should not confuse what an interactive console 
does in trying to be convenient to use, with what the core language itself is.
