i think something like:
# create a list of vowels
v = 'aeiouy'
# since working on comprehensions...
vowels = [v[x] for x in range(len(v))]
l = [word[x] for x in range(len(word)) if word[x] in vowels]
f('the rather slothful brown fox stepped over the line')
['e', 'a', 'e', 'o', 'u', 'o', 'o', 'e', 'e', 'o', 'e', 'e', 'i', 'e']
outcomes = [[x,y] for x in ['h','t'] for y in ['h','t']]
[['h', 'h'], ['h', 't'], ['t', 'h'], ['t', 't']]
Thanks - I'm getting better with the comprehension lists. I'm still unsure of what to do with the GPA problem, I'll tackle that tomorrow. Appreciate all your help.
I'm on the GPA problem also. Like many of the exercises, it is very poorly written. It should have been peer reviewed, and student critiqued. "Could we write the program in a different way" Is this part of the exercise? "There are a couple ways to do this" Really? How about if we find just one?
I think the exercise is simpler than it appears once you weed out the confusing verbage.Thats my guess at any rate. I'll know once I finish the exercise.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
What kind of trouble are you having with the GPA problem? I've posted my solution at https://gist.github.com/4051746
Thanks pdpinch - that was helpful. I'm still having trouble with how to approach these, I guess it's just me trying to figure out how to program well - my brain isn't clicking with it as easily as I would like :/
