Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Trying to get a feel for python, so I copied and pasted the barnyard code example from "4: Abstraction through Functions; Introduction to Recursion". I am doing exactly what the prof is doing, but when I type "barnYard" into the Python Shell, it tells me "NameError: name 'barnyard' is not defined" Now this is probably a simple error on my part, but for the life of me I can't see why I can't replicate the results in the classroom when it copied exactly (including the indentations). Does anybody here have any insight that might help me?
