Welcome to the Josephus Problem in Python page! Here, you’ll find the source code for this program as well as a description of how the program works.

```
import sys # for receiving inputs from command line
def josephus(n, k): # main routine
if (n == 1):
return 1
else:
return (josephus(n - 1, k) + k-1) % n + 1
n, k = 0, 0 # initialising the values
try:
n = int(sys.argv[1]) # input from CLI
k = int(sys.argv[2]) # input from CLI
except:
print("Usage: please input the total number of people and number of people to skip.")
exit(1)
if (n <= k):
print("Usage: please input the total number of people and number of people to skip.")
exit(1)
print(josephus(n, k))
```
