Hi fellow OCW students, I have a question about the Hangman game homework. http://pastebin.com/2mhjAqZC here is my function for checking if there's more guesses to go. What it does is that it goes through every string in 'inter' to see if there's '_' . So, if there's none of them, it means you've guessed everything and you won. However, my question is that my code seems to be too long. Are there more efficient ways to check if there's a specific character that I'm looking for in my string.

    'inter' is the string of your guesses on a word. So, it changes from '_ _ _ _ ' to something like '_ _ s _"
