for people who know about using python scripting in ArcMap, I'm a GIS student and I have a small project about python. I'm beginner in python language I need some help in my python script. it's about square buffer around a points feature in GIS ArcMap 10.1? and I have tried all my best to do this but it's not working .. Hope you'll help me If you don't know "Just tag this post to anyone who know about this" Thanks in advance.

This is my script:

`    import arcpy    import math    import os    from arcpy import env    env.overwriteOutput=False    #Point Feature Class that the square buffers will be created around    Input_Points= arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)    #Path and name for Output Polygon Feature Class    out_Feature_Class=arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)    Out_Path=os.path.dirname(out_Feature_Class)    out_Name=os.path.basename(out_Feature_Class)    #Height     h = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(2)    h=float(h)    #Width     w = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3)    w=float(w)    cursor=arcpy.da.SearchCursor(Input_Points,"Shape")    fields=cursor.fields    for field in fields:      m=cursor.next()      x=m[0][0]      y=m[0][1]      x1=x-(w/2)      x2=x+(w/2)      x3=x+(w/2)      x4=x-(w/2)      y1=y-(h/2)      y2=y-(h/2)      y3=y-(h/2)      y4=y-(h/2)      pnt1=arcpy.Point(x1,y1)      pnt2=arcpy.Point(x2,y2)      pnt3=arcpy.Point(x3,y3)      pnt4=arcpy.Point(x4,y4)      arr=arcpy.Array([pnt1,pnt2,pnt3,pnt4,pnt1])      square_buffer=arcpy.Polygon(arr)    arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(square_buffer,"square_buffer")    arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management(Out_Path,out_Name,"POINT")    arcpy.AddField_management(out_Feature_Class,"x","FLOAT")    arcpy.AddField_management(out_Feature_Class,"y","FLOAT")    arcpy.AddField_management(out_Feature_Class,"POI","TEXT")    arcpy.AddField_management(out_Feature_Class,"Height","DOUBLE")    arcpy.AddField_management(out_Feature_Class,"Width","DOUBLE")    with arcpy.da.InsertCursor(out_Feature_Class,("SHAPE@xy","x","y","POI","Height","Width"))as cursor:      for line in cursor:      attributes=line.split(",")      x=attributes[0]      x=float(x)      y=attributes[1]      y=float(y)      POI=attributes[3]      Height=attributes[4]      Width=attributes[4]      row=((x,y),x,y,POI,Height,Width)      #arcpy.Add massege(row)      cursor.insertRow(row)`
