I'm new here, and I need to know how to generate a list of numbers from 1 to 9999 for example, when using "for x in range(1,9999)" its not working at all

    I have tried: for x in range(1,9999): print x and it's working. Do you get some kind of error message?

    the range function will generate a Python list. how are you trying to use it? http://docs.python.org/tutorial/controlflow.html#the-range-function http://docs.python.org/library/functions.html#range

    I'm not sure dr_road12, `for x in range(1, 9999)` should work fine, in fact, `for x in range(n)` is a very common way to knock up an iterator in Python. Are you sure you're not forgetting the colon? Every header ends in a colon... for x in range(1, 9999): print x

    I agree with carlsmith, you probably forgot the colon. I've done it a hundred times and it's frustrating scouring your code to find you forgot a simple colon.

    if using python use the .randit function. same function you would use for a numbers guessing game
