Hi, could someone take a look and see what the problem is, please.
The problem is with the equation in f_sizeAngle(). I am trying to get an app to draw a geometric shape defined by the number I enter for sides. For example, I enter 3 to draw a triangle.
f_sizeAngle() assumes a regular polygon. According to that equation, for a triangle, it should send 60 for angle size to f_draw(). However, the angles that get drawn are closer to 100 degrees.
I will post it next post:

## create a program where the user can request a turtle to draw the object of choice.
## the object will be selected by entering the number of sides the object contains.
## the program will use the sides to calculate the size of the angle and will forward this
## information to a function that will draw the object
from swampy.TurtleWorld import *
world = TurtleWorld()
bob = Turtle()
t = Turtle()
sides = int()
print bob
def f_enterSides(sides):
## careful since raw_input is a string value it must be converted to integer before being
## passed on to f_sizeAngle() or there will be a type error
x = raw_input("Please enter the number of sides of the object: " )
int_x = int(x)
f_sizeAngle(int_x)
## compute size of angle from number of sides
def f_sizeAngle(sides):
n = int(sides)
sizeAngle = (n - 2) * 180 / n ## with sides/n = 3, sizeAngle should = 60. however, it doesn't
f_draw(sizeAngle, n, t)
## draw object
def f_draw(sizeAngle, sides, t):
for i in range (sides):
fd(t, 100)
lt(t, sizeAngle)
print t
## f_sizeAngle(3)
f_enterSides(sides)
##wait_for_user()

my guess would be that the swampy module must define angle as external, and my equation is internal....

... when I enter 4 for sides (iow, a square) it works. the angles are drawn corrently. but anything smaller or larger than 90 degrees is off.

changing sizeAngle = 360 / n is the answer. so i guess i was using interior and the module was using exterior.... thanks y'all, for lettin me think out loud
